My Hybrid Albion Poitiers
« on: 2015-01-01, 04:57:28 »
Several months ago I posted about a bare Albion blade that I purchased from Joe Metz.  I ended up having furniture made by Earnie at Yeshua Swords.  He did a great job on the cross and pommel.  I finally got around to adding the grip.  I'm pleased with the results.  Now to start the scabbard.  A friend who makes shaker boxes gave me a stack of 1/8 inch wooden slats.  I think they will work well and won't be so bulky as the 1/4 inch slats from Home Depot.  Happy New Year!

It looks great! Glad to see it's all put together.

That's a beaut Sir Humphrey, no lie.  Can't wait to see the scabbard you make for it.
