Wooden sheath with back edge with six (three missing) metal bands. Because of the shape of the blade it cannot be drawn in the usual way from the scabbard "always of two wood halves, and the weapon is therefore often employed for a strode as it rests in its sheath, the light bamboo binding being severed at the blow." (No traces of bamboo binding).
