Because my functional back scabbard design worked so well it's high time we see if we can improve it, and make it look as awesome as it's fundamental design!
This new and improved shabbard was made by Blades and Blazers, please go check out his website if you're interested in his work: bladesandblazers.com/

    • @Glimmlampe1982 according to my internet search, several results said sheath simply is a term meant for a covering. And that scabbards were made of hardened, rigid materials, commonly wood or leather. So I concede that point to you as, apparently both are legitimate scabbards. The cloak thing probably does depend on the materials used in its construction as you stated.

    • @Nightfall89 z this one, yes. Which makes it a sheath, if I'm not wrong here. But historical scabbards were made with a wooden core. Depends on the cloak. I did some light sparring in my rectangular cloak, not wet though. Did work ok. But in case of a battle quick access isn't really necessary. That's more a ambush situation and depending on the cloak it might take to long to take it off.

  • Would it not be more convenient to put the buckles for the main strap over your chest instead of behind your shoulder? That way you wouldn't need to be able to detach the scabbard from the Baldric(?) because you could just unbuckle the whole baldric and take it off when you go to sit down. Maybe... a buckle that when undone doesn't actually unclasp the whole thing, but instead just loosens it enough to slip over your head? Take it off, hang it on the back of your chair, then when you're standing back up you just throw it over your shoulder and tighten it back up again. Edit: there might also be some modification doable to the locking mechanism to actually lock it into place, so the sword cannot be removed from the sheathe. It'd take some brainstorming, and you might need to modify the sword a little bit, but you could probably get it to lock into place enough that you could hold it upsidedown and shake it and it wouldn't come out, but can be undone fairly quickly with one hand so you can draw it with a minimum of fiddling.

  • or you just oil the blade and shabbard to make it hydrophobic 🤨 back in the medieval days rubbing lard on the blade would give it a temporary water resistance for very little cost, like you wouldn't need to much lard to rub a thin layer on whenever it was raining so swordsman could carry some in a small leather pouch and every time they eat they could refill it with animal fats from their meal

  • Something I only just considered. If you are squaring off with someone and they draw your sword, a standard scabbard has it already in the right place for them to stab you. Would love to see someone try to draw from someone else's back scabbard.

  • Sir the best way (in my opinion) of having a sword on your back is not a long one. I have a custom sword from my wrist to my armpit that i wear on my back (the handle keeps going) with the small sword ive also picked up on using a smaller forearm shield. Completely my opinion but maybe give it a try with a sword from your wrist to your armpit. You can draw it and put it back quite easily without that protrusion from your back scabbard.

  • I can see that being able to run, climb and stuff is beneficial to an adventurer, but for weather protection what can you actually do to keep the sword sharp and rust-free? I mean, at night you can take it off of course, but as an adventurer, you need to access the sword at all waking times, so it's stuck in the "shabbard" the whole day long. Any advice?

  • Hmm... I wonder if there's a way to solve the weather protection issue via some kind of quick-release cover. Essentially, something that you could put on perhaps with the scabbard off or with a partner/friend's assistance, but that would be held loosely enough to come off with little effort when the sword was drawn, getting it out of the way. Maybe some kind of flap so it wouldn't just fall to the ground and get lost. Taking the scabbard off or getting help would be inconvenient, but it'd be something you'd only do when travelling and/or in inclement weather, so I don't think it'd defeat the purpose of the back scabbard overall. Though, with period technology, I wonder how you'd do something like that without the risk of it getting stuck...

  • The only problem that this would bring is if you got into a rain .. you really have to go deep into the scabbad to get it dry again. Of course it is not a complete issue because you can do that but that might be a disadvantage

  • I'm wondering if a brass chape and throat might not be improvements. The Throat piece could be a split design along the side to allow the blade to pass through which would give the throat of the scabbard a bit more rigidity for sheathing the sword. As for the tabs, my idea for improvement would be to move the D-rings closer to the front of the baldric towards the chest so that removal is less awkward. potentially using 2 D-rings per strap to keep said strap from moving around. It would also give you more points of contact which would increase the load bearing capability of the snaps while using the wide baldric to distribute the weight. The brass throat would also help with structure, and I really liked the idea of using the metal bands to add structure. I'm wondering if boiled leather might help add even more structure, if it's not already made of boiled leather. Boiled leather seems to be a bit stiffer and harder. Just some ideas that my limited knowledge of swords and scabbards, but plentiful knowledge of load bearing equipment came up with. Hope it helps for ver 2.1.

  • What always bothered me with swords on the back is the fact that you don't see your weapon at all. What if someone just yanks it out and run away or better yet just run you through with your own sword? Walking like that in urban areas (where using swords makes the most sense) will be pretty scary.

  • If this were an actual historical item, I feel like this scabbard would have ended up being called a "four-year" to differentiate it from the standard hip or belt scabbard. Similarly to the French words that became beef, poultry and pork, being injected into the English language by the Norman invaders, I'd expect this item would be called either a "winged scabbard" or simply a "back scabbard" by said Normans. The names in French would be "fourreau ailé" or "fourreau arrière" respectively, and either pronunciation would be easily Anglicized into "four year". Which would doubtless, in the modern day, result in endless debates and urban legends about the true origin of the term.
