“Gladius handle” Leather, 2mm waxed thread. Cork, Republic of Ireland. Colman O’Keeffe. “Thank you for replacing the handle grip, the old colour was blood stains from the battle after which they made me centurion. Too many memories which I tried to keep from you. You are of age now so it was time you learned. Do you remember how you complained when I asked your mother to teach you how to plait your sisters hair, you thought it unmanly. Ask Lucius if he still plaits his wife’s hair, he’ll laugh because I taught him how in the weeks before the wedding. The laughs in the barracks while he plaited mine to practice! You did a magnificent piece of work, almost as good as Lucius when I taught him. He might be better than me depending on where the Legions been since. He is alway learning wherever he goes. Now remember, volunteer with the leather workers after training, earn enough leather to make yours the same. Train with yours and your comrades both, someday you might need to pick up an unfamiliar blade. Train with both hands, there might be a day you fight with two blades. As Lucius what the extra string is for? After his first answer say You jest with me? He’ll tell you true second time as I did to him. You can keep guessing until then as I did when father said it to me before I joined. After your first year ask Lucius if he’ll teach you more leatherworking. He’ll take it as a compliment coming from my son. Learn well and remember, if it looks too simple, that is how a true craftsman shows his skill. Learn it so you can teach it to others.” - It’s just like plaiting really. Uhu to hold the initial leather in place to the foam, fabric glue to hold the handle in position. I left the elastic inside to hold it together while it glued. Be patient and gentle using the awl to attach the plaited string to the handle. #cosplay #roman #leatherwork #art #irishart #irish #painting

“Imperial scabbard ornament” Car leather, gold thread and brocade - Cork, Republic of Ireland. Colmán ÓChaoimh. “When you see Lucius, you remember, I saved his life. Tell him, This is my finest work. Blood and sweat went into this. No tears though, not like our military campaigns. I call in my debt. He is to pay the bribes to welcome you into our cohort. If he is not Centurion as I was by the time he retires, I will kick his arse. He will laugh. Tell him I am still ten years wiser. I have tea from India for when he comes to visit and tell him you have a sister who will be of marrying age, if he tires of his Gaulish hag. When he holds it up to you and asks if you could do better? Reply Not yet, I am sure you shall teach me how! Be humble! Know your worth and others will come to recognize it”. - When you are sewing the brocade on use the same needle holes as when you fastened it together, saves work. #cosplay #roman #art #irishart #irish #leatherwork

“Gladius scabbard” Car upholstery leather and waxed thread - Cork, Republic of Ireland. Colmán ÓChaoimh. Picture the legionarys son “It’s not my best work, quite deliberately. It’s virgin leather, the rain will make it hard. It’s not flashy, so the lads from another legion won’t covet it. I hid a few coins inside, in case you ever need them. Bring them home to me when your tour is ended. A gift to Ariadne and Venus when you have to resow it. Venus’ gift should be bigger, as you know well!” The 5kilo bag of scraps on Amazon has some reasonable sized pieces, though these days you might try a breakers yard for bigger pieces. The 2mm waxed thread is good, it is difficult to tie knots. Sailors needle, leather workers awl. Good pins. Biro to mark inside of leather as a guide. “Be gentle and patient with the work, like everything good in life.” #romangladius #cosplay #art #irishart #irish #leatherwork
