Scabbard for Albion Poitiers
« on: 2015-04-19, 19:46:31 »
I finally finished the scabbard for my Albion Poitier blade. The buckle, strap end and rampant lion are from Armor & Castings. I made the sheet brass chape.  I enjoyed doing this project.  I have a Albion type X blade that I bought from their recent Moat Sale.  It will become a Viking sword eventually and I'll get to try my had at a 9th century scabbard.  Thanks to Sir Ian and others who were patient with my questions.

Good choice of colors, I like it. Which kit are you going to be using this one for?

Fantastic! I really like the fittings, but I'm partial to lions. ;)

Great work!

The tooling on the belt and suspension leathers looks professional grade, Mark.  Really nice job!
