Scabbard features: Leather cover over a leather core with leather risers, textured mild steel chape and locket, supension system, Hand-carved patternweld skull, and textured patternweld buckles. The textured plate on the scabbard reads in Latin

"Liberate Vosmet Ex Inferis" "Liberate Thyself From Hell"



Cheers,

John Gage

Hi John,

Nice opening statement. I've never heard of you or seen your work, but I am pleasantly impressed. Looks like a niche that you cover well.

Thanks for joining. Please tell us a bit about yourself.

Coop

Hi Coop,

Thanks. I have seen you around Don Foggs' forum a bit and love the photo work that you are doing!!!!! Because of your insite i am working on a setup where i can take better pics of my blades.

I have been smithing for about 5 years and a recent former head cutler at Albion Armorers. I decided to pursue bladesmithing full time on my own, its a tough gig but i am hoping i can keep it up for as long as possible.


Cheers,

John Gage
