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.

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.
