This hilt is made by Alojz Krišto, it's two piece pommel, brass, with copper wire between upper guard and pommel, grip is horn with black leather spacers. Hilt is similarly sized to original hilt so the balance remained more or less the same. I took this horrible pictures with my mobile because there is something wrong with my camera cable and I can't put pictures from camera on a computer. I will after I get a new cable or something.

Very nice sword Luka, you and the metalworkers who made the pommel and crossguard
are to be congratulated.

i definately agree with dave i love organic composite hilts and grips, when horn is done nicely it can be amazing stuff, i've not enjoyed working it in the past, theres more that can go wrong with horn than bone and antler so congrats to you!
Imust admit feeling a little jealous..

just another student of an interesting subject, Happy
