Maybe because they are somewhat informal. He doesn't even appear to have a scabbard. Never carried a sword without a scabbard. It was routine to sheath the sword when going into a platoon formation to correct a recruit. Not nice to poke out some kid's eye. Very easy to forget you had a pig-sticker in your hand when charging into the formation highly enraged.
