Sword Frogs, Dagger, Rapier and Ring Frogs



Medieval Sword Frog and
Medieval Dagger Frog

Medieval Sword Frog

Medieval Dagger Frog
Large View

This style frog is seen in Medieval illumination countless times, and is one of our personal favorites.

We use a double layer of heavy bridle leather to create the backing and belt loop; and your scabbard is secured to this backing using soft yet sturdy leather lacing straps.

We've shown our dagger (lower left) peace-tied using the excess lacing.

We don't claim the construction method to be historically accurate. What we've done is develop a simple and inexpensive way of recreating a classic Medieval look.

Our design works well for broadswords worn at the hip and daggers of many styles.

Both the Sword Frog and the Dagger Frog fit belts up to 2 inches wide. We'll be happy to make size adjustments for wider belts at your request.

Minimum scabbard widths:

Swords: 1-1/4 inches
Daggers:  1-inch
Leather Colors:  Black, Dark Brown, Chestnut, Dark Tan
Leather X-Strapping:  Black or Brown

Sword Frog of the Circle

Sword Frog of the Circle
Large View

This sword frog is our original design, and has been one of our most popular frogs over the years. Based on our research and interpretation of styles in the late 14th and early 15th century, it will hold even the heaviest blade comfortably.

Angled straps suspended from a large ring is one of the most practical frog designs we've encountered in our research, and it is equally appropriate for broadsword, small sword or rapier.

The difference between this fluid design and a rigid angled sword frog is beyond description.

Suffice it to say that allowing your sword's own natural balance to work for you frees you from vigilant awareness and positioning of your sword as you sit down to an ale, move through a crowded event, or kneel before royalty.

In our testing, we've found this to be one of the most comfortable and versatile frogs we've ever worn.

Belt Dagger Frog

Belt Dagger Frog - Large View Front



Belt Dagger Frog - Large View Back

We custom-make your Belt Dagger Frog to fit the belt (or baldric) width that you specify, between 1-1/2 inches as a minimum (due to the frog's configuration) and 4 inches as a max.

The sturdy backing (photo 2) is created from 8 to 10 oz bridle leather.

The sleeve sections (photo 3) are a lighterweight, softer leather, which we very securely hand-stitch to the backing piece.

Buckled frog straps, grommets, and leather lacing complete the frog.

Your dagger frog wraps around and laces firmly onto your belt or baldric, so that it will not slide should you need to draw.

On request, we can cut the lacing longer to double as a peace-tie.

Leather Colors: Black, Dark Brown
Hardware:
Nickel or Brass
Lacing:
Black or Brown

Please specify belt or baldric width when ordering
