Nurbs Curve twist the object in odd random directions...

I’m a little lost, I’m modeling a sword and scabbard that are curved. I finished the sword and it looks great, I finished the scabbard and was going to curve it with nurbs just like I did with the sword. However when I apply using the same method it distorts the scabbard all funny. instead of bending along the x axis like the sword, it twists and throws the whole scabbard side ways instead of bending it. I tried to recalcuate norms I’ve tried deleting it and starting over. What am I missing?

Also when I move the nurbscurve all funny it pulls the mesh a part instead of trying to bend along the curve.
