I know this is a fantasy sword, but I'm curious about the hilt construction and the terminology that would go with it. (I'm not as sword savvy as I would like) I'm specifically curious about the block just under the guard, is there a specific term for something like that, also the guard extension on the blade, would that be considered exaggerated langets?

looks like I messed up on the pic, sorry it's too small, if you do an image search for winter warriors on yahoo you will get a thumbnail that you can enlarge for better viewing, again sorry it did not come out larger.

I have moved this topic to the Off-topic Talk forum.

Please note the description for this forum:

"Discussions of general history and other miscellaneous topics relating to arms and armour that do not specifically fit our other forums"

It does not belong in the "Historical Arms Talk Forum" because, well, you're not discussing historical arms.

Thank you.

Looks to be just part of the guard, albeit a strange one.

Just a part of the guard. It looks like the designer of the sword had juxtaposed a taijijian's guard with an European(ish) crossguard, and I must admit that the result looks rather cringe-worthy to me--there'd be way too much weight in the hilt this way and God knows how the swordsmith is going to redress the balance.
