Hi Jeff,

Open-faced scabbards are very common in NE India/northern Burma/adjacent Yunnan areas. Long versions are seen in Assam, for example, and neighboring states as far north as Arunachal Pradesh. There are numerous tribal groups in these regions that use open-faced scabbards. You mention some on your list, but there are several others as well.
