I am going to buy a steel waster and I was wondering if there was a way to get a scabbard that costs less than $100,

Am I out of luck?

You could just go for an all wood, homemade one. Half inch thickness poplar wood slats of suitable size on the shelf in my local hardware store. There are lots of how to articles here, including a fairly complete one by Aaron Schnatterly. http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t...t=scabbard

Follow the top hyper link within the article. (The above is a continuation showing a later phase completion of the scabbard.) He originally photo documented the process of hollowing out and shaping the raw wood slats.

Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence!

I always just buy the universal pleather ones from United Cutlery. They are easy to cut down if too large, very rigid, and last forever. No, they are not authentic, but then again, they are under $25. I get them for trainers that I know I am not going to be only be taking to and from practice.

Check here:

They also make a medium size which is a few inches shorter and little narrower. eBay will have them.

Gym bag or a cloth wrap. It's a waster, after all.

If you are not too focused on historical accuracy (and given your price range it's going to be hard to be), you could make one in fiber glass in no time, then cover the core with leather.

Cheers,
