I'm doing my small database for a few swords.
Unfortunately encounter difficulties in establishing the section.
I need same information regard the "Reichsschwert" the sword of St. Maurice in Vienna.
The sword is a Oakeshott XI. The section should be lenticular, but from the pictures I do not understand.
In all the photos and to the tip that confuses me.
Does anyone know for sure his section?
Your help is appreciated.

This sword as almost all swords of this era has a lenticular tip section.
This article has some good information including pics of a reproduction based on hands-on documentation.

Thanks Dan,
but I had already read the article, the section is not mentioned. In his book, Dr. Manouchehr cites the section in mid-blade around, I don't have this book, but my german friend say so. There is even a drawing the section.
It's possible I'm wrong.
This is a sword XI a little particular, (fuller for example). Since a photo is difficult to judge well. But if a section is lenticular should not show corners. A section of diamond may be rounded to make it look like a lenticular . Even a hex can be rounded to make it look like a lenticular .
A section lenticular pure, it is more difficult to make, this is sure, but appears with cleaner forms.
I post, here, some photos that help explain better.
Ciao
Maurizio
