Wooden scabbard for a Bronze Age sword, based upon one found at Store Kondehoj, Vamdrup, Denmark, dated to 1500 - 1300 BC.

The scabbard design has been based upon the original and is repeated on the back. Made in two halves, it has been lined with calfskin to prevent the sword from moving and to also help burnish it each time it is drawn, and then glued together. The wood used for this is Ash, however Birch and Hazel are known to have been used in the Bronze Age. The wood has been treated with Linseed Oil once carving was finished. The mouth will be shaped once the handle has been fitted to the sword.

A suspension loop has been fashioned from veg-tanned leather, and based upon one seen on the Mykenos Vase. A tan stain has been used to finish.

The use of calfskin has been based upon a study of a scabbard found at Pyotdykes in Scotland, which found that bovine skin lined the scabbard, with the intact hair facing the blade.
