European Baldric -Left Handed
2 in stock
Description of the Product
This is a classic accessory for carrying a sword or other weapon, although it looks great alone too! A favorite way to wear a sword since biblical times, the use of the baldric continued well into the 17th century. While much of the weight of the sword rested on the hip, the shoulder strap provided extra support from the opposite side of the body. This added balance and comfort. Assyrians, Romans and Vikings are all shown in contemporary art wearing baldrics. This European Baldric can be worn with any sword we sell and fits any period. Made of oil tanned leather, this baldric is available in black with nickel silver buckle.
Available as a right handed baldric, where the sword hangs on the left hip, or as a left handed baldric where the sword hangs on the right.
Left open (Default option): You can stitch it closed to fit the sword of your choice. For this you must make holes in the leather, and the more you make the sturdier it will be. At its simplest two sets of holes will do. Tighten with leather string or similar.
Pre-punched holes: You can specify the width of the scabbard you will be attaching to the baldric and we will deliver the baldric with holes already made. We will make two sets of holes (as per the picture) and include a leather string.
