Included with the long Viking seax is a sturdy, high-quality sheath made of brown, vegetable tanned leather. It features a handsome braided seam and a pair of belt loops for typical Viking-style horizontal carry.

Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop (e.g. to complete your costume) and will make your transformation into a proud Norse warrior just perfect!
