One of your greatest lessons was learning never to be caught, and it is the person who is always moving who survives. You travel from tavern to barn to abandoned shack, never growing attached or creating ties. You are the wandering adventurer.
On your travels you keep your weapon close by, secure inside your Sword Holder. Along with your armour and your skill, you expect that you may yet live to be a wisened old veteran. You certainly have the survival instinct.
Epic Armoury’s Sword Holder is a leather frog designed to keep your weapon handy and angled to prevent being entangled during battle. Embellished with a pointed cut, this frog is 13 cm long, open at both ends, and will accommodate a weapon up to 5 cm in diameter. Soft split-leather has been added to the inside of the hoop to protect your weapon, also providing just enough resistance to keep your weapon from falling out without making it difficult to withdraw.
Match this Sword Holder with any character you wish to equip by securing the holder to your belt through the 7 cm belt loop. Made from vegetable-tanned full-grain leather and stitched around the edges, this weapon holder is built to keep its shape and withstand the abuse of a LARP with regular leather care.
This Sword Holder is designed to be used by a left-handed player.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
