Yes, it's beautyful. Personally I prefer the ones with more standard forward guards. There's a really nice on at the Culloden Visitors Center that has been excavated. Too bad it didn't say where...

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers,
Henrik

Constant and true.

Ah yes, a so-called "Pinch of Snuff" hilt with removeable foregaurd. Rather rare, and very nice! I know ElJay has made some beautiful reproduction POS (that's Pinch of Snuff) hilts, but I don't know if he's made one with the removeable gaurd....

("Pinch of Snuff" comes from the name of a painting of an officer in a Highland Regiment carrying one of these swords. The officer is also enjoying a pinch of... something....)
