    Hey guys... Just wondering how you all plan on displaying your scabbards. Personally I really want to keep it off the blade, looks bizarre to me to have the blade half covered as some suggest. I want to display the scabbards with the swords but I can't think of how. Any ideas?

    I have the swords on a wall, and then Hadhafang horizontally in a display case nearby, along with other LOTR items. I was thinking of placing the scabbards for Sting and Ranger (attached to their belts) behind Hadhafang, perhaps on a pile of cloth or something.

    I was toying with the idea of buying a second Sting to display one on the wall and one in the scabbard above, but I can't do that with Ranger due to the length of my case.

    What I'd like is a big coffee table with a glass covering so that I could put my swords and scabbards in there very stylish like.

    Never display your swords in a scabbard...it causes moisture to build and the blade rusts :)

    I will be displaying them side to side slightly :)

    I guess hangers...depends on your scabbard. You can have nails or screws that "pinch" it

    thanks primrodo. i think i'm just going to place them to the side and slightly lower than the swords. im just afraid it will look to cluttered together, but i do need to save the room for all the future swords!!!

    Understandable :)

    Thats actually kind of what I plan to do...Like the way a museum displays swords :)

    If you get too many swords...get a bigger room ;)

    What I ddid to keep my sword scabbard on Sting was to take a thin strip of cardboard, like a math book. and folded it up and tucked it between the blade and the scabbard. Tightened it up very nice and it never slips out. Just an idea

    cool idea. I like the way it does not cover up the entire blade allowing you to still view the ruines. Thanks
