Family Crest Scabbard

The owner of this longsword wanted his family crest displayed on the scabbard. I tooled it into the leather and applied gold leaf. When I made the brass lockets, I also hand engraved the letter “b” into the upper one, the client’s monogram.

The poplar core was carved to mimic the transition of the blade’s thick ricasso to the edge. The brass lockets were made by me; the belt fittings and chape by Tod Cutler.
