Soldiers who wore lorica hamatas (mail shirts) would add extra protection to their shoulders. They placed a U-shaped collar of leather or mail called "doublings" over their shoulders and attached the ends to their mail with four rivets. At the front, the ends were secured with a cord (later, with a large metal hook). Although legionaries wore lorica hamatas from the early Republic until the fall of Rome, doublings went out of fashion toward the end of the 1st century A.D.
Our legionary doublings are made of blackened iron rings with a thick leather backing.
The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like. If you´re not sure, whether it is a suitable one, contact us with your order number and we will recommend you a suitable style. If you have already received the sword, we will ask you after receiving your order to submit several measurements of the sword blade. If we still have not dispatched the sword, we will take measurements of the blade ourselves and have the scabbard made for you in correct size.
