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)

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👍
