Iron mounted scabbard for a 24" bladed hanger. Copied/inspired from an original 18th c. scabbard which I assume to have been English. Throat and drag was made from 22 ga. sheet steel. Locket/frog button was filed from 1/8" steel, and brazed to the throat and post. A 20D nail was used to make the post. The drag/chape was hammer shaped over a form in two pieces, then brazed together. The leather is 7/8oz vege-tan, with a center seam sewn with linen thread. Lightly dyed with Fiebings British tan sprits dye, and oiled. Both mounts were lightly aged to match the sword, and glued to the leather. Hope you enjoy a look.

Beautiful work! I have to make a scabbard for a hanger that I obtained recently. If only I was as talented as you are! Mine is going to look quite ametuerish I'm afraid but I'll never learn until I jump into it.

That looks amazing.

I've always enjoyed seeing your knives, but your scabbard & sheath work have really inspired me. You've got that center seam down to a science, but its the hardware that sets it off.

Great job.

Don
