"In keeping the the Landsknecht idiom, cheap.  Probably a simple crescent or epsilon scabbard end in silver tone to match the Katzbalber  I am not very good at soldering or I would have already made one.  Not a critical project since…"

"There have been some similar discussions here like:  http://www.landsknecht.org/forum/topics/scabbard-for-a-langes-messer I was thinking either tacking the little sheaths down to my leather Katzbalger scabbard or maybe running it through some…"
