    Very nice, Eric!
    Any insight into how you made it so far? Did you make a mold from your scabbard tip, and cast the brass? Or did you hammer it into shape somehow? How will you join the two halves? Solder/braze them?

    Looks good, though!

    Thanks Glen.

    I hammerd it into shape on a anvil. First i head up the brass until its redhot and then i hammer it into shape. And then i constantly check if the fit is good. I will solder the two halves with 50% silver solder.
