Introduction: Sword Sheath

For all the people that own swords or perhaps a machete here is how you can build a sheath (if your blade didn't come with one or the old one broke.) It is a very simple project plus it helps to keep the blade protected, not to mention you...safe.

Step 1: Supplies

There are not very many supplies needed to complete this project. The few items you may need are:
*Sword, or knife( you need something to sheath)
*knife or scissors( for use as a tool)
*cardboard
*tape or glue
*pencil, ruler

Step 2: Creation

First you measure out the length of the blade you are going to build the sheath for. Cut out a piece of cardboard you can fold into four different sections like the second picture. I left a flap on the bottom so the won't be and opening on both sides. Fold the sections into a triangle opening...I also sliced the outer edge so it would be a cleaner fold. Then glue or tape it into place. Ah the simplicity of it. You can also add a belt loop onto the sheath for easier carrying. And thats it....happy slicing, but please be careful.

sorry, not to be mean just wondering didn't the Chinese have strait swords, i never heard of a Japanese strait sword, i mean if you have a katana why would you need anything else?. i don't know much about kung fu weapons but i know the strait sword is chinese ( i have 2 of them)  but if there is a japanese strait sword let me know, it sounds pretty cool.

 Yea, I don't know of any Japanese straight swords either, actually the one I do know that is Chinese, the Jian, is called the Kana by the Japanese; however it is still the same Chinese sword...Idk if the Japanese actually ever used it.

 hahaaa! On the contrary....I made it to enter into the Cardboard contest that was a while ago...but people also like looking at swords, if I didn't have them in this it would just be lame and not as cool. You said yourself they were "cool blades" lol

author
Virtuous made it!(author)2009-11-23

ok *** hole, have you thought that maybe it does work and maybe its just that you suck at making anything that takes a lil effort?... Mine works just fine and does not fall apart or split open.  BTW this was for the cardboard contest that was like a couple months ago...pls if your gonna comment, make it constructive or at least a "little helpful

Could you make a more sturdy sheath????

author
Virtuous made it!(author)2009-10-12

You probably could depending on the cardboard you use or the way you fold it together, but the one I have shown is actually very sturdy the way I folded it.
