    Scabbard for my Cervenka Viking #2000115

    Well I broke down and finally made the scabbard for my Cervenka 3 lobed viking sword. I had finished it in leather and a metal tip but I was going to burn in a viking design at the throat. Needless to say it went all wrong! Well neccesity being the inbred second cousin of invention, I was forced to learn how to make a metal throat with my limited equipment. Well its all finished, which is to say, I better stop fooling with it and post the pics before I do any more damage. Still, I'm rather pleased in the way it turned out. Next time will be better, as I have learned what NOT to do!
    Well here goes!

    It sure looks good enough to me Tom! Not overly fancy, but a good working sheath. Fits the sword very well IMO.

    I really love the look of it! It looks like something that works and that is created to be used. Great job!

    I think it looks simple and functionally done? I too am curious? Did you damage the blade? The scabbard? Tools? Yourself?

    Nope, but I did burn the top of the leather so I had to cut it off and work out how to make the throat. Also it is a little rough from were I had to clamp the two ends together with a pair of vice grips, so the throat has some dings. Nothing to bad and a little polishing made it look better. It did give me a chance to make a better looking mouth though. I cut a small piece of leather of the same color and glued it to the top, then fitted the throat piece over that. Now the mouth is covered by leather instead of felt. Looks real clean!

    Looks to be a perfect match...

    The metal collar complements the guard, while the leather matches the grip. The style is clean and functional, which is reflective of the sword.

    My VC Viking is due soon, so hopefully I can get a scabbard made for it.

    Greetings Tom Carr, I do this stuff myself. Yes, quit messing with it before you really screw it up. Really, an excellent execution sir! You should be proud of that effort. It all looks like it belongs together. I am envious and hoisting ale. Sincerely, Patrick Fitzmartin

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! :^) I plan to do a little experimenting and work out some metal work techniques. What kind of tools do you use to shape the tips of a scabbard. The simple flat strap is fine for early scabbards, but I also want to be able to make a nice full tip. There has to be a shaping tool that sticks in an anvil. What is it called, were can I find one and how much does it cost?
