I wish I could say that it was the first time I'd heard an older guy with a beard using the phrase `this is quite a tight fitting sheath` - but I was young and needed the money.

"I own a sword which goes ka-SHING when you draw it. while its not designed for killing people, you totally could. Its lethal."
I bet the entire scabbard is metal. I have one too, and the scabbard has completely scratched the crap out of and slightly blunted the blade.
It's a crappy `medieval look-alike`
Every other sword/knife I own has some combination of wood/leather/fur scabbard, the only metal is usually the buckles and sometimes a metal ring around the outside of the opening. (I love the ones with fur on the inside. douse it with a little oil and they turn into self-cleaning and oiling.)
Honestly, no one in their right mind would want to mar up their blade with metal inside the scabbard.
Speaking of Hollywood. My favorite BS item are the guys with a sword longer than their arm strapped to their back... think about it. ;)
