context as its described by the COED as "the metal cap of a scabbard
point." (it can also be "the back piece of a buckle attaching it to a
strap, etc," or "a sliding loop on a belt or strap"). I'm glad that
we actually have a world for it in English, although I must admit
that I had never heard it in my life before...
