Hello Thomas,

the oversized scabbards for Kachin daos are very normal and I am nearly sure that the scabbard from your one is made for the blade.

Here some examples from Oriental Arms and a picture taken from the book "Burma, Frontier Photographs 1918-1935" where you can see that this swords are very big/long for their former owners.

Regards,
Detlef
