The sheath for the rondel was completed today. The sheath is thin calf skin over thicker cow-hide. The chape is hand forged from pure iron sheet. A small belt loop is woven through slits in the back. This was a method often employed by medieval craftsmen.

Eric, it has been so long, I almost forgot you could put together a none-to-shabby scabbard Laughing Out Loud Wink.

Seriously, very nice; I especially like the chape. I really think the iron added something in the depth of color in it, and I very much like the little filed notch at the center of the round cutout.

What intrigued me most was your brief discussion of construction. If you could point me to some documentation on the "leather over leather" technique for the scabbard body I would be most interested in reading further. Would you have documentation by any chance of this same technique applied to sword scabbards as well? This is just something you don't see every day in today's scabbard market and is something I've been thinking about for some time.

Could I trouble you for a shot or two of the scabbard throat and the back where the loop is attached?

Thanks again and I hope to be stopping by the shop in a week or two to say hi Happy

Thanks for the kind words.

I think the whole project turned out well. I don't say this to be arrogant, but often times when you draw something out, it doesn't turn out the way you planned it. In this case, it turned out as planned.

Anyway, thanks again.

I posted early on your seax thread, then I saw this one. So to reiterate, Great work! The leather and metal work on this scabbard are beautiful.
