If you're making the scabbard, you might find it rewarding to try to make the furniture as well. You can get thin sheet steel from Lowes or other home improvement stores. Hobby/craft stores sell sheet brass. Might be worth experimenting just to see what you can come up with.

Hey, Katie. Albion's sale here:

http://www.albion-swords.com/moat.htm

has two different styles of chapes in stock, one of which is steel. Would either of these be close to what you're looking for?

Oh, East of sands and sunlit gulf, your blood is thin, your gods are few;
You could not break the Northern wolf and now the wolf has turned on you.
The fires that light the coasts of Spain fling shadows on the Eastern strand.
Master, your slave has come again with torch and axe in his right hand!
