Got in a couple of Plain Jane H/Ts this week; a Norman and a Early Medieval.

The Norman was given a new antique tan grip with cross-hatch pattern risers, an antique dark brown scabbard cover, and an antique tan belt with Celtic knotwork embossing. The suspension for the scabbard is a simple laced frog with double belt loops and finished off with a tan latigo tie.

The Early Medieval was given a dark blue grip treatment with evenly spaced risers. The scabbard was done in antique black, with a dark blue frog with two belt loops which laces from the rear. Again, the Celtic knotwork was used as an accent.

The original scabbard fittings were re-used in order to save some money for the customer. Both swords were given a nice satin finish upgrade, to replace the chrome looking factory finish.

Definately an upgrade for these two swords. Happy

The Tinker Pearce / Hanweis are actually very well made swords, as has been discussed at this forum. They had 'project' written all over them, but what Jonathan has done with these goes well beyond what I expected.

You guessed it, they're mine.

Thanks Jonathan.

Nice work. They look totally different now.

I received them both yesterday, and was so pleased with the work J.E. did that I rang him up, a 3 hour time zone difference which woke him up, to tell him how pleased I was. He's a good sport, and didn't tell me to take a hike & call later.

In the flesh they look even better than the pics. The satin finish to the overly shiny guards & pommels is now a tasteful, more pleasing look.

The riser work of the grip re-wraps is clean and makes the feel in the hand completely different. The colors I requested were dead on what I had in mind.

The re-work of the scabbards, making use of some parts of the originals was ingenious on his part, not to mention the very substantial belts with excellent decorative work.. J. E.'s work has such a nice substantial look to it general, nothing looks cheap or bargain basement.

Once again, crusadermonk comes through.
