Smallswords can be seen sported on baldricks, "a la bandolier" in a military, specifically naval, context; such as seen in de St Martin-

A modern translation with cleaned up plates is available here as a fundraiser for next year's American Smallsword Symposium-

However the usual method was "a la ceinture" as can be seen in Angelo-

There are also sword chains, "en chaine", which are much later, and usually associated with court swords, as can be seen in reproduction here-

Of course it would be remiss of me to neglect punting this book while I am here ;-) -

and the International Smallsword Symposium in October 2015-
