    Today UC received the Anduril and Glamdring scabbards. We'll have left overs after filling our preorders for the Glamdring scabbard, with the anduril scabbard it is going to take multiple shipments to fill our preorders.

    Also, for those waiting for the gauntlets, UC expects them in on Wednesday (so we could be shipping them early next week).

    On another note, I just received notice in the Mithril Armoury newsletter that apparently, UC is going to eventually make scabbard for ALL LOTR swords except the Uruk-Hai sword.

    As well, I am considering buying the glamdring scabbard.
    but I am really undecided.

    Chris, would you please post your impressions when you receive it?

    thanks in advance :)

    I would too like some real life pictures of the scabbard before buying it... although Glamdring is my favorite sword :)

    The glamdring scabbards just arrived.

    It is very light and seems thinner/more flexible than the strider scabbard. It almost seems as if it is made to expand and contract based on the size of the sword you are inserting. Perhaps this is how UC has gotten around the "sword does not fit" issue.

    It is a snug, but smooth fit, and the sword slides in all the way.

    The downside of this change is that the scabbard is less durable and could more easily be broken if force is applied to it (such as if it were used to block a swing, or if it were used to attack, or if a heavy person stomped on it on a hard floor). However, it does appear there is a metal bar running the length of the scabbard inside the leather, and that should atleast provide some structure/resistance, so even if the thin wooden shell that gives the scabbard it's shape were broken it would probably still function.

    The leather and the metal work seem to match nicely and they are put together like the Strider scabbards.
