Sword scabbard

Wooden sword scabbards were usually covered in fabric or leather, and leather versions also usually bore metal fittings for added protection and carrying ease. Many scabbards like the ones the Greeks and Romans used were small and light. They were designed for holding the sword rather than protecting it. Later on, however, by the time of the last Roman kings in Briton, both swords and scabbards alike became more intricate and were made of stronger and stiffer materials. A number of ancient sword scabbards have been recovered from weapons sacrifices, a few of which had a lining of fur on the inside. The fur was probably kept oily, keeping the blade free from rust. The fur would also allow a smoother, quicker draw.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Do you make custom-sized chain mail armor?

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
