Draw/sheathe damaging scabbards?

Sacrificulus added the following to the page:

This seems to slightly damage the scabbard, so frequent use of aliases that make you sheathe your weapon, perform an action and then draw the weapon again will result in "wear and tear".

I've never heard or experienced scabbard damage upon draw/sheathe. I'm curious if and when people have experienced this to see if it happens to specific scabbards or weapons.

I regularly use many staff harnesses, a (moonlit market) knife belt and an emerald-studded sword belt, regularly drawing and sheathing respectively broomsticks, various knives and tiger fangs and I've never seen those scabbards be damaged with use.

Sword belts

Rigrig said "Sword belts don't sheathe heavy-swords :()"

But it works fine with heavy-swords with my sword belt:

sheathe wyrm sword
You sheathe the Wyrm Sword in the emerald-studded sword belt.
draw wyrm sword
Power surges up your arms as you grab the hilt of the Wyrm Sword.
Power surges up your arms as you grab the hilt of the Wyrm Sword.
You draw the Wyrm Sword from the emerald-studded sword belt into your left hand and right hand.
sheathe soyin
You sheathe the Holy Blade of Soyin in the emerald-studded sword belt.
draw soyin
The blade feels as if it is an extension of your own arms.  It seems like a mighty weapon indeed.

sheathe it
You sheathe the black bladed sword in the emerald-studded sword belt.
draw it
You draw the black bladed sword from the emerald-studded sword belt into your left hand and right hand.

Weird, I looked up my log:

sheathe sarilak in belt
The ruby-studded sword belt is not a suitable scabbard for Sarilak.

So either ruby- and emerald-studded sword belts are different, or Sarilak is special. I passed my belt on to an alt, but she might be persuaded to lend it back for a quick try with other weapons soonishly.

Well ok it doesn't sheathe my Sarilak either.
Must be that it requires the special scabbard or it's too heavy or something.
