Brass Mounted Scabbard For 18th. c. Type Dirk

7 posts in this topic


My first real piece of work that I have done in 14 months. Had some health and vision problems, but am getting better now. The knife is a representation of an 18th c. "broken Sword" knife. The knife was made by Kyle Willyard. Old Dominion Forge. I made the sheath with a center seam up the back, hand sewn with linen thread, and with brass mounts. The leather is 6/7oz vege-tan carving leather, and stained with vinegaroon. The mounts are all hand made by me from brass sheet. The brass aging on both knife and scabbard was done with 44-40 cold blue. The knife's brass mounts came from "THE RIFLE SHOPPE", and the grip is bone. Hope you enjoy a look.

Great work all the way around and as a major fan of swords good looking dirk though personaly never liked the hilts like that tend to get in the way in actual combat at times. Would still love to own it lol love the back seam on that and great work on the brass!!
