Custom Handmade Scabbards
One thing we do at Valiant Armoury, probably more than any other company in the field, is make custom high end scabbards.
We have made literally thousands of scabbards over the years for our production line of swords. It is one of our passions and we're really good at it.
What does this mean for you? It means that if you have a sword from another maker, and you want some hot and sexy leather wrapped wood for it, we're your go to source.
Now there are some differences between our production scabbards and the custom made to fit scabbards offered here.
The production scabbards are made from templates that we have developed over the years and are designed to accommodate the variables derived from hand made forging of blades from our forge.
Our production scabbards are quite attractive and we use top grade materials for sure, but because they are made from templates, the start to finish process is much quicker for us to produce. Less work time helps to keep our prices lower on the full package production swords we make and sell.
When we make a custom "One-off" scabbard, the process is more detailed and obviously takes more time. More care has to be taken with measurements and other variables to get just the right fit. This means that for shop time, less work can be done and therefore we charge more for a custom scabbard than we would for a stand alone production scabbard.
The good news is that, for comparable work, our custom made scabbard prices are still far below what most other custom scabbard makers charge.
