The scabbards are different for each kind of sword and we don’t recommend to use a scrabbard for any type of sword. The scabbard of a sword is the cover of the blade, where the sword rests and that’s why it has to be custom-made for the sword.
For the straight blade swords we can use a standard scrabbard. The maximum length of a straight blade sword is usually about 80 cms. and the width is about 6 cms….
The hole of the scrabbard, where the blade goes, presents a hook or a ring to make easier the insertion of the sword. The leather scrabbards are usually reinforced by a metal end to protect the end of the sword. The scrabbard gives to the sword an extra protection.
The scrabbards of the swords have also more elements that help the user to carry the sword: Adaptors for the belt, swordbelts, etc…. Not all the scrabbards can be fixed to the belt. Some of them have no hooks and are just decorative.
The customizing of scrabbards are the perfect solution for the rest of the swords because of the characteristics, for example, because the blade is not straight or because of the size of the grip, or for example the “Rapiers” that needs a totally tailored scrabbard.
