I have a wood core scabbard for my longsword, but wood core scabbards make me nervous, so here's my much more flexible wetformed leather scabbard. I'm very happy with it. https://scontent-lax3-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/60358847_821868071532559_7381181772425330688_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_ht=scontent-...
