    would have been cool to see it a bit more in action, sheathing and unsheathing and whatnot, but This was great to watch

    A scabbard is a protective hard cover for a blade, rigid because of wood or metal. What they have is a sheath, because it has no structure other than the relatively soft leather.

    If anyone is curious about the song towards the end of the video, it sounds like: Marshmello - Alone

    I hope we get to see the finished thing a bit better. With the added katana and drawing the khopesh from its sheeth. (Sheeth for flexible container, scabbard for hard container)

    Maybe some finale of sorts where Ellie shows off all shes learned and made.

    seventeen minutes of bernie struggling to keep the interesting bits in frame, and no shot at the end displaying the completed belt?

    There are so many people at Rooster Teeth with such a diverse range of skills that in an apocalypse situation, if the company were able to stick together despite being such a large group, they'd not only survive but thrive xD

    If I were Ellie, I would worry about whatever Burnie is cooking up as an 'exam'/performance review after all this.

    I'm imagining a The Last of Gus-scenario IRL.

    so it would seem that a sheath is for any item as long as it "closely envelops" the object. Scabbards are specifically for swords, daggers and blades

    • mcscrubberson FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 months ago

      A scabbard is a sheath with a rigid core(typically wood)... or a sheath is coreless scabbard. Leather tends to be slightly acidic and thus corrosive to steel blades, so with steel blades came the need for less harsh sheath. you still have to be careful when choosing wood though, as some are also acidic and harmful to the blade. Poplar, maple and birch are all great options. 


      P.S...

      Let me know if that was too much info... I watched RT Podcast for years(and the vlog) and this is the first time I've ever commented on a video. I figured I should try to share some knowledge from my field. If you google "Diamante swords" you'll find my my website/portfolio

    Remember when these vlogs were actually interesting looks into life at Rooster Teeth and updates on what Burnie was working on, instead of just making Ellie do some random activity every week? Only two of the last nine videos have had any real substance, and while I like Ellie (for example, she was fun on "On the Spot" a couple of weeks ago), I don't watch Burnie's vlogs to see his assistant take krav maga or craft a sword.
