Rex M. - Chevalier Scabbard

IMG 20150612 134621


Here is the scabbard with the Chevalier inserted. It's a firm fit, but not too tight. That's exactly what I would have hoped for and expected. It not only looks great, it hangs well. Not that I expect to be carrying it around campus, y'know. It's really a work of beauty and practicality.

We have to admire our medieval ancestors for the ingenious way they solved the problem of carrying a sword, but also to the present-day artisans who can recreate the pieces with such grace. This was a work not only of the hands, but of research, and love.

Now my problem is to decide how best to display it! Nice problem to have.

Thanks again.
