The scabbard and hilt should be blue (or red, depending on the iteration). It could definitely be done, but I am suggesting that if you are custom building a sword from the ground up, it doesn't make sense to not get the color right. One of the defining characteristics of the master sword is that it is blue. Just google "master sword" and image search, they are all blue.
Now - I acknowledge that this is supposed to be a more "realistic" build, but you can very easily do a dark blue dyed leather like Sonny and CF do. That is not "unrealistic."
I could buy it and have the fittings completely redone - but then I am in the realm of just ordering a custom.

melcher81 - I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the sword when you get it. One thought I had based on the pictures is that the grip appears to be as wide as the blade where they meet the guard. These measurements aren't given, but I had a concern that this might cause the grip to feel a bit too big. Admittedly this is impossible to know without actually holding the sword. It could totally be a non-issue.
It's a little heavier that I hoped and the handle is too wide. It's rough made and the handguard is held together in separate parts by some sort of epoxy or liquid weld. I had planned to have it modified with a new grip before it came and I think I will love it when I get these done. Actual overall impression other than what's going on with the guard is good though
For the price with the $75 discount I like it. If someone payed the $2500 that they say it would cost as a one time creation from the company is be pissed. Mostly about the guard
That suck's to hear. I didn't have similar problems with the sword I have from them but the design mine has would be way easier to make. Only similarity I had is it had a bit of weight and the handle is wide. I don't mind wide or thin handles tho
durinnmcfurren: He is using a picture of my viking equipment. He has nothing to do with me. This is a very niðinger-like act on his part! Not drengr at all.

lebleuchevalier: I just got a new Windlass sword and was surprised some of these are coming pre-sharpened from Museum Replicas. There's a big secondary bevel, but it came nice and sharp.

Ouroboros: Master shotokan, been good if not busier than busy. Think the family has only been home 2 weekends and a week all summer. Camping fun before the winter grinds us to grist. Hope your labs come back a.o.k. long haul symptoms suck.

LoE: Lemme guess... wants a private check, no refunds. Shares stock photos. Doesn't want accountability. But has exactly whatever it is you're looking for.

LoE: Never selling it himself of course. Just a zero post guy that "knows" of someone who has one, if you'll reach out to him privately. I get tired of the scam artists. Wish they'd get arrested.

LoE: Watch out for tomk001. Seems to be the next occurrence of the same scammer aldarith pointed out. Hitting me up in PM's offering whatever I have listed in WTB.

Ouroboros: Decided to compare custom blades between rhe site listed below and hanbon (read the faq and it mentions hanbon) same options it would appear to be same? New face, old business?

LoE: aldarith lemme guess, he creates an account, has zero posts, then PM's someone stating a friend of his has exactly the sword you listed in the WTB section.
