Scabbard and all.

I finally finished my scabbard. I made it out of 5mm leather, then covered it with clothing weight leather. Not a top job, but it will do. Actually I am quite pleased how it turned out. The carrier straps I adapted from a couple of very old bridle straps that I had hanging in the shed.

Good work! This sword is beauitiful. I love all manner of swords but the cutlass seems most appropriate to my heritage. Light fast and your sausages are protected by a cage!
