Field scabbard

Not much to do I'm afraid, they are often made of low quality leather already. Depending on the style of saya and length you can find original replacements.

Would discarding it and restoring the wooden scabbard be an option ?

What do you do with the leather field scabbard that’s falling apart due to old age ?

 

 Sell it on Ebay..... Only joking! Generally they were made with vegetable tanned leather which is prone to rot, and the quality varied a lot. I have one that is top quality bridle leather, and others that show all the signs of late war shortages.

 The stitching is usually too fine to restitch as well. As suggested above, replace it with an original.
