This is a tutorial I made today for non-leatherworkers to get started on a simple project. Hope it can help someone.

FOr the smaller, more elegant swords you Canadians use (Ateliers-Nemesis, Calimacil, etc.) I tend to make these frogs longer (maybe 6" wide instead of three or four) and smaller diameter, and often line them with velvet to save wear on the latex.

I usally line my sword holder with "feutrine" (I am not sure of the correct word in english, but it is artificial felt)

It'll still hold a sword, and practice makes perfect!

Great tutorial, very thorough! Was pleasantly surprised to find this after searching for sword frogs, and can't wait to try my hand at making one.



Thanks!

Hey thanks for the tutorial!

I just made one for my husband before I saw your tutorial so mines a bit different but I like your idea of a tie down ring for the draw. Nice tutorial👍

Thanks again,
Toolingaround
