Blue leviathan quiver by akinra-workshop Blue leviathan quiver by akinra-workshop
Designer : Me
Crafter : Me
Photographer : :iconpicrik:
Made of 3mm vegetable leather.
Size : 70cm for 16x8cm on the top and 14x6cm on the bottom

I finished it a few mounth ago but couldn't take good picture of it. Now it's done, thanks to :iconpicrik:

So here is my quiver. It is made of five part : three for the body of it and two decoratives ones. The first are laced togheter and the last are sewed.
All pieces are bordered with arabesque. The center part is decorated with a leviathan that as carved, beveled and textured by hand.
The full cration was dyed with turquoise, blue and finally darkened with black.

Concerning the harness for wearing it, it is made of three braid hold together by a central piece. They are adjustable by buckle and fastened by snap (easier and faster to put on).

Like all my product, this one is made of vegetable leather. It's a leather tanned with vegetable product like oak bark. This particulary leather can be worked as wished. It absorb sweat and let the skin breath. It's sturdy and with care it can last for years.
Cut by myself then dyed. It received a first coat of oil.

Like all my product it is fully handmade by myself.

Every comment is welcome.

Daily Deviation

I am fairly new to leather working, so you may want to take this with a grain of salt. I think your craftsmanship is wonderful. Crisp cuts, nice stitching and your tooling is very defined. Now I'm not sure if it is just the picture or what but the coloring looks kind of splotchy, and I'd like to see more contrast with the dragon. The nice tooling seems to blend away into the surrounding color, and the coloring of the trim almost seems like an after thought. Overall, nicely done and it's better than I could do. Keep up the good work.

Wow! Amazing work. May I ask what kind of tools you use for engraving? Do you dye it before engraving or after, to make the pattern stand out so well and become so visible?

how much for a quiver commision? i love this quiver, it looks very sturdy but functional also. the dragon is beautiful leatherwork, but not my taste. how much for a quiver with and without a big engraving?

thanks man, by far one of the most beautiful quivers i have ever seen!
