Originally chain connected to hilt.


Reconnected chain to top of scabbard.


That looks much better.......

However, I think while the weathering is 1st class, and very realistic, in reality (I know) no one would wear a weapon like this!

Firstly it would be banging around all over the place as it swung uncontrollably by the chain. Secondly, any weapon (gun, knife, sword, axe....) needs a fixed and secured location on the body for easy and repeatable deployment!

Imagine Red Sonja scrabbling around chasing the mobile knife at her hip, as she's being attacked by three barbarians.....that won't end well for her.

Itís fantasy dude,, in reality no one would wear a chainmaille bikini right, no one would wield an axe that huge right especially a female, let your mind go and enjoy, itís called fantasy for a reason.

I know, and you're right about the fantasy aspect. Touche regarding the metal bikini!

Good job on Sideshow replacing the head on mine due to broken hair. No issue and replacement looks nigh identical to original I received. Impressed and pleased.

Good job on your customization warhead! Sideshow has come a long way in my mind and improved themselves so that pieces don't need tweaking after purchase but what you did here is fantastic nonetheless!

This piece is stunning. Mine arrived friday and is perfect in every way

Kind of feel guilty over ranting about Sideshow QC on the Wolverine peg issue now
