I have 1 question, Maciej:
What's that tied to the sword's scabbard?

It's called a strap bridge. It's a suspension method used in this period. A baldric or belt would loop through it to hold the scabbard in place.

That is a fantastic looking sword and scabbard package. I really like the stitch work on the scabbard, especially around the throat area....super neat and clean.
