Does anyone have any tips on how to tighten the sheath of a han style jian? Mine fits well, but if I were to actually wear it and, say, run or jump with it, it slips from the scabbard very easily. Maybe just some electrical tape to make it tighter?

Where did you get this han style Jian? Usually, a good sword should be able to stay in the sheath even if you hold it upside down.

Through the online store here. It only stays in if I turn it to 45 or so degrees. Definitely not upside down.

The "Octahedral Han Dynasty Sugar Brown Tai Chi Jian | High Carbon Steel". Is there a way to correct it?

Well, you cant have everything for 119$ - you get what you pay for basically - but the blade itself is good excellent. The materials of the fittings are alloy instead of brass - therefore the price. So the rest of the sword is much lighter compared to the blade - this is why is throwing your gravity center a little off and won't stay in your sheath. Besides, that its a good value for the price. There is no real fix for your issue since this kind of sword is supposed to be carried in a sword bag.

Thank you for the response. I actually managed, it seems, to fix it. In the end it was really easy and now stays in when upside down as it should. If anyone else runs into a similar problem I would be happy to share.
