Default wow, faak it's done!

...as promised here are the progress shots and finished item.

"It was a delicate and long process to fabricate this scabbard, due to the thin and narrow walls of the two scabbard halves, especially around the 1/3 of the scabbard's tip/end."

"the smith examining the sword estimated the sword to be 100+ years old"









THanks again to Serge for organising a difficult resoration project, as most of who dabble in restorations know, it is almost always easlier and quicker to make a new blade and scabbard rather than attempt to use an existing blade with fittings and remake.

Cheers
