I finally finished a scabbard for my seax I posted awhile back. Lots of firsts , wood carving , sheath/scabbard, copper sheet overlay, bear fur lining. I was really inspired by Petr's Vendel period sax but drew from both viking and anglo saxon sources for carvings . I really wanted to do the copper sheet in steel or iron but steel proved to difficult and iron to hard to find . Copper seemed like the best route as the inays on the fittings were copper it works but to me is a little jaring. Hope you like it and of course all comments both positive and negative are welcome Thanks I had
