How to make a Seax Scabbard with a Metal Edge Binding

Visit Website
Description The majority of finds for seax-scabbards show the widely spaced marks from riveting holes rather than stitching holes. These scabbards were edged with a strip of metal, the sharp edge of the blade facing towards the metal edge. And if you have ever accidentally cut through the stitching of a sewn-up scabbard it immediately makes sense. A metal-binding also stiffens the scabbard which again makes a lot of sense if you wear it suspended horizontally from your belt and move about a lot – no accidental stabs in the belly or similar. The following instructions describe how I make such scabbards, using totally unauthentic techniques, but the result looks right.
