Folding the rope on the Scabbard of the Katana
by Dewald van Staden
QUESTION: Would somebody please explain to me in a step by step manner how to fold the rope at the top of the Scabard of a Katana.
I have received a Katana as a gift, but the Katana was not properly looked after, so I need to know how to fold the rope that is usually used to fasten the Katana to the belt in that beautiful pattern.
Thank you in advance.ANSWER:
One of the best online guides to tying the knot again (called Sageo) can be found here
- it's not easy to do just from the pictures, but this is the clearest guide out there...
Hope this helps!
