I have a few examples pics, one is of two random swords with rounded points and the other is from the museum in Stockholm, Sweden. It's in the background against the wall with other two-handers, as the original object of the photo was the sword of Gustav Vasa. This photo was provided by one of our fellow forumites, Mr. Hellqvist.

Enjoy,

Nick

Happy to be of service Happy . I have quite a library of photos of two-handers and it's always nice to put it to good use.
