My Hunting Sword Scabbard Finished.

My leatherwork is very basic, I have seen some lovely work over the years, but I can not even come close to matching it. Still what I make does work, so I do not give myself a too harder time ! At least you know that if I can make something, you can too.



I made this brass carrier slide from part of a sword basket guard.

Wow again I'm impressed. Top shelf sir. Would still love to see footage of these beauties ,being worn, drawn, and some closeups. If you did and were feeling froggy some cutting demonstrations and maintenence routine? Just an idea, my feelings wouldn't be hurt :)
