|I also made a scabbard for this rapier. Of the original
scabbards, only some imprints of wood fibers, identified as being hazel
are preserved. So I also used hazel for the scabbard. The leather wrapping
is based of several sword scabbards found in Denmark. For the baldric,
I looked farther, at a Greek depiction of swords on a vase showing the
horse of Troy. As I had to make the belt in two parts, due to available
length of the leather, I used a (Danish style) double headed wooden button.
The whole scabbard is coated in lineseed oil.
