    Found something interesting for those with a historical bent. Scabbard/quiver combinations from the Medieval period.

    Just thought I would share since I thought they were rather cool and I really want one for my SCA and/or Hunting kit.

    What do you guys think?

    I need to get around to making a quiver, but the odd shape of medieval quivers has me thinking hard about how to go about it in the first place.

    It is not surprising, considering the pouch/dagger combo's that were common then, too (and I want one!) Thus.. I am wondering, If I can adapt the quiver that I make, to include a dagger/short sword/??

    Those quivers...
    Wonder if the dagger is to the back, or the inside of the back plate...

    Thanks Basilisk! Great idea, I wonder if Darkwood Armory and I could do a collaboration.

    I saw those pics over on myarmoury.com. I thought the original poster must be crazy!...Who would think of such a thing!??!....But there they were! I guess it just goes t'show ya'.

    I like the shape of the one that the guy on the horse has. His crossbow is pretty nice too (medieval perspective aside).
