The grip is wrapped in black leather then secured with wire wrapping, providing a comfortable hold. The polished steel scabbard has two carrying rings for a secure attachment to your belt or baldric.

Really nice sword, but the sheath seems a little cheap because it scrapes a lot when the sword is drawn or sheathed. Feels good in the hand and has a nice weight. Only gripe is that there is a seam on the leather handle right where you grip it, but that’s not a problem if you wear gloves.
