Here is an interesting blog post about historical design. Many hilts some by famous artists. They use the form and embellish in the popular styles of the time.

Enjoy Sword Hilts

Great page and now gleeped to my bookmarks. I have seen some of these individually but not as a collection.

Cheers

Hi Glen

Some are a bit over the top for my taste but I especially like this one.



It is a similar idea to an early Indian sword I have seen that had a whole city depicted on the pommel.
