Bowie Knife Rig
I got a D-Guard Bowie knife as a gift, made by Atlanta Cutlery Corp.: http://www.atlantacutlery.com/p-841-...wie-knife.aspx.
However, the scabbard doesn't have a swivel or belt loop, so carrying it is kind of difficult. I found this photo showing some kind of "rig" made by a Confederate soldier. I looks to be either a cotton or canvas strap; with one end to the scabbard, and the other tied around a bracer button under the belt: http://www.flickr.com/photos/library...ss/6987389225/.
Even though that scabbard clearly has a swivel, I think I can make the same thing. Any thoughts, suggestions, input?
