Mine came in black with a silver steel tip. It was more ornate that the one pictured. It is all wood inside with a leather covering and decorative cord wrapping it. On the back are the 2 knives in very nice condition with a tinder pouch. My longleaf fits nicely and I quickly made a leather frog. The longleaf is a giant of a knife, and so is the scabbard. You could just stick this thing inside of a heavy gunbelt. In any case I am very pleased. It looks great.
Truly nice work. Can't imagine the patience it must take to build the first one to get this process figured out. Only criticism is that the wire hanger is about half the gauge of a vintage one. Know there's a reason for that. Very pleased overall.
I was worried that this scabbard wouldn't be wide enough to accommodate my kukri blade, as its belly dimensions are closer to a budhuna kukri than to a Classic Gurka Army Kukri (long leaf). I needn't have worried; this thing is a monster! At 17" long by 4" wide there was plenty of room for my Kukri. I only wish that it had come with a faras (belt hanger) but they're easy enough to make with a few scraps of leather and some lacing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a CGAK or budhuna scabbard.
