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.
