Hello all,
I have a question: the reference period is the year 1000 onwards. There are historical examples of hilt with only wood or bone? No skin. It would be historically incorrect to make a hilt only with wood or bone? Some pics would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Ciao
Maurizio

I presume you mean just the grip of the hilt, with cross and pommel still made in metal?

in which case Cinquedea were fairly regularly hilted in wood, bone or ivory, dependant on the price and quality, a few rapiers I've seen had ivory or bone hilts. Horn seems to have been quite regularly used too for hilts

best I can think of straight away, I'm sure there's others I'm missing Happy

yes, JG. So.

Better express my question. Swords Oakeshott from type X to XIV, the hilt without leather, but only wood or bone.
Wood, with steel wire or silver.
A picture explains better. Something like that.
