This is another hand forged XVa type long sword. Pommel is based on Peter Johnsson projects (Sempach sword pommel) Weight is ~ 1450 g. Materials as usual : spring steel for blade, reinforced bar steel for guard, mild steel - pommel.

Sccabard with wooden core, reinforced by linnen fabric soaked in hide glue, hand stiched, calfskin, hide glue.

Very nice Jan!

Out of curiousity, are Type T2 pommels typically found on XVa swords?

Beauty! Happy

I love the proportions, and the pommel construction looks very interesting.

Can we get a close up shot of the pommel? The more I see of your work the more I like it.

Craig,

As far as I know, this kind of pommels were used in XV type swords (and other types too) (see atachments) But it is hard to find XVa type sword with Type T2 pommel. I find only one example on iconography that could be XVa sword - brass effigy picture.

Nevertheless, in my opinion "fish tail" pommel fit to this kind of blade too;)

Unfortunately my memory card in digital camera was almost full during taking this pictures, and record other pictures on photo's showing full sword, edge and point... so I don't have any pictures. Sorry. I can arrange pictures if you need it, but it's the same blade like few others XVa.

That combination of pommel and guard is just outstanding. Sometimes a certain look just speaks louder than others and this one really grabs my attention. God I love this place. It's like a virtual museum tour that never ends

Dobry den, bardzowne mecze panuov v polsce, slawianska slawa stawu meczarskego.

Sorting single parts of the swords is important but probability occurence in in following centuries isn΄t smoll.
