Just a quick question...

Is it possible to add an inlay to an already finished sword? For example could I take an Albion Knight to a jeweller and get them to inlay a silver or gold phrase in it? I realise it wouldn't be historically accurate, but I'm thinking more in terms of adding that personal touch for a gift.

Cheers guys. Happy

Possible is possible, and even historically accurate: other than the iron-inlayed blades of the north blacksmiths there are a good number of exaples of gold and silver inlayed swords from south europe, often with very accurate and long phrases.

You can see this article: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t...ght=inlays

Maybe you have to find the right goldsmith, or one with the patience to try


UPDATE:
There is something in "Sword in Hand" by the Oakeshott, pag. 40 (vikings blades) and pag. 49 (knigthly swords)
