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
lebleuchevalier: I feel a great tremor in the force.

treeslicer: At the moment I'm very thankful for turkey, sweet potatoes, cornbread dressing, pumpkins, pecans, green beans, and good friends and family to sit down to it with. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Quillon: ... and be thankful for blades and swords

Quillon: Ye be thankful for God, his Son and the Wampanoag Tribe who feasted with the first Pilgrims here in New England circa 1621.

Deleted: One n Glens rule, Quillions are superfluous if not understood. Scabbards may define one's preference while missing the finest of wine.

RufusScorpius: Black for you, Glendon. I see that you be a business man upon the briney deep.
Nov 18, 2021 22:39:05 GMT
RufusScorpius: I like the way you think, brother Nathaniel. And such will be the flag color on our upcoming adventure.

glendon: Rufus: Orthodox European Pirate (reformed), out of Berwick by way o' Carolina--therefore, black.

RufusScorpius: Red or black pirate flag? Because that's important information to know actually...
Nov 18, 2021 20:08:18 GMT
glendon: Simply because one tries to be funny, doesn't mean one succeeds. Ah, well. Forums, though; one just never knows with whom one is actually dealing, eh? The opportunities for grand and hilarious misapprehensions abound. Slainte.

Quillon: He brought the Ole' Spice pirate flag, too late.

Brother Nathaniel: You two new jacks don't get spicy now ya hear?!

Quillon: Analogies compare two things to make a point while metaphors and similes make a more direct comparison.Very humorous indeed.
Nov 18, 2021 18:04:34 GMT
glendon: Quillon, I was being humorous; you are proving yourself ungentlemanly, son.
Nov 18, 2021 17:53:47 GMT
Quillon: I'm sensing that outside of dressing like a pirate for Halloween you have many swords without scabbards hanging on the wall? 🤣
