I'm making my own scabbard too, It's a hard job.

I have to make my chapes, the leather is done.

It looks like a sword from a czech smithy... Kovex? fabri armorum? Pjetr Melc?

They use this pommel, I got 2 or 3 of those.

Yer scabbard looks very nice!!

how about soreness and stays... how uncomfortable would that be?

And did the females in the 18th century use a slit in the stays and shift? or did they have other methods?

Calling Tuppence and Nigel

Please react to my pm's

I am still waiting for my wool (for two months)

Have you contacted the delivery company yet?

I paid over 30 pounds for shipping, so I hope it is insured, so I can get the wool I paid for.

I hope to hear from you soon!

never saw sources, but I do have one and it adsorbs the blows just fine.
I want to make one with deerskin, but deerskin is very expensive here, so I have to find me a good source first and then I get one right.

I don't say my targe looks super, but i think it looks oke.

wood: available almost everywere
pottery (clay): not everywere available, so extra cost (easy to get, just dig out)
pewter: not everywere available and harder to get, so more extra cost

conclusion:

wood cheapest
pottery middle
pewter most expensive

Pictures of my new targe

Made me a new targe, cost me: - 2,5 evening - 2 sore thumbs of putting in the tags through the leather, before I could hammer them in (without bending them so that I had to remove them and replace them with a new one). - lots of pleasure and fulfillment when done! http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y2...
