Wick Ellerbe Scabbard

This Wick Ellerbe scabbard was copied  after an original, with but few modifications. The metal work is from 22 ga. sheet steel. The leather is 7/8oz vege-tan, sewn with linen thread in a flattened center seam. The sword is an Old Dominion Forge, Willyard/Secrest  American hanger with a 24" fullered blade, and a finely hand cut ribbed wood grip. Both sword and scabbard are lightly aged to the soft warm patina often found on used but cared for original pieces.
