The scabbard slides through the guard behind the V-notch. The scabbard post seats into the notch with the 7/8" leather strap passing across the scabbard post. The sword is worn with the crest or textured area on the sword guard facing the outside.

To adjust the post, use a wide, flat-tipped screwdriver wrapped in a soft fabric, insert it between the scabbard post and scabbard, and twist gently.
