What is a scabbard
A scabbard is a protective sheath for a blade, typically a sword or a knife. It is used to store, transport, and protect the blade while not in use. Scabbards are typically made of leather, metal, or other durable materials and are designed to fit the blade snugly, to keep it secure and to prevent it from damaging the surrounding area or injuring the person carrying it. In addition to practical purposes, scabbards can also serve a decorative purpose and can be ornately decorated with intricate patterns, materials, and embellishments.
