|LEATHER SWORD BELT RIG & OFFICER'S BUCKLE
The saber, or sword belt can seem a pretty complex rig. For starters, it's a sturdy belt which must support your pistols, cartridge box, cap box, and saber if you wear one. The shoulder strap provides extra support to the left side, where the saber is worn. Two longer leather straps of different lengths hold the saber down low to the side and at a proper angle when mounted, and a small brass hook holds the saber up snugly to the side when dismounted.
