I recently bought an A&A Schloss Erbach sword and one of their simple leather scabbards (I know historically it should be leather or cloth over wood). What kind of sword belt should I make or buy? Historical accuracy is my main concern.
Thanx,
Z

I'd might send it to Christian Fletcher at www.christianfletcher.com and commission one of his scabbards. He does wonderful work second to none and is more than happy to guide you in the proper direction for authenticity.

However, it might be a learning experience for you if you make the scabbard / belt yourself. There are instructional postings on this site that would help you achieve the authentic look you are searching for. Here is a good post I was referred to:

I hope this helps.

This thread has a good step by step explanation of how to make a historically accurate suspension system from the late 15th century, which would be quite fitting for your sword:

I know the integral belts are cool, but they're not suited to a 15th century piece.

Hi Zack,

Have a look at the arma bohemia website. They sell belts and suspensions including buckles for 40, which is not excessive in my opinion. The example showed here (the red belt) could well fit a 15 century scabbard.

Cheers,
