8571Re: [medieval-leather] long sax sheath
- Nov 1, 2003Got two possible cures for you to NOT drag a sharp edge out of a sheath across a rivet.1. Use a strong gusset on that edge.. that way you wont cut the threads.2. Put in a hard nylon 'rider'... replaceable with a chicago screw. Or just rivet the nylon piece between the layers.Most of my sheaths either for dagger or single edge I put in gussets where the edge will face the threads. Never had one cut out yet by a customer.Charlesscaka Lazaruswww.leatherwork.biz

It's a possibility, but I wouldn't want to subject the blade to being
dragged across a metal collar every time it went in or out of the
