The Sageo 下緒 (さげお) have been used on Japanese swords for many centuries. The purpose of the Sageo is to hold the SAYA (scabbard) into the obi belt and keep it from slipping. It is also used at times to secure the KATANA into its SAYA by wrapping the sageo around the tsuka and tying it off. It is easy to customize your Japanese sword by swapping out the Sageo.
