Dont know how many of you have seen this link before to the Swedish Army Museums Sword collection here......

http://www.sfhm.se/templates/pages/ArmeObjectListPage____306.aspx

........its a bit obscure to find and doesnt come up on searches in English, but I thought that some might find it interresting. Its not exactly in my own period of interrest, nevertheless the Sword photos open up to some nice detail shots.
Enjoy !

You see Merv, one of the sabres displayed at the Swedish Army Museum broke its blade. No one suggests that its blade should be replaced.

I really wanted to visit that place last time I was in Stockholm. Alas, I was veto'd by my family. T_T

Too bad; I would have loved a closer look on that funny-looking Pappenheimer rapier. Still, I did get to visit the Royal Armory, which was almost as good:

Seeing the sword of Charles XII totally made my day. Happy
