Hello everybody...and happy new year!

I came across the following sword being offered but I can not find out who made it and if it is any good? I hope someone here can identify it and maybe even comment on the quality and authenticity.

thanks
Uwe

Whoever produces that, it looks pretty rough. Not too expensive I hope. Looks like it could make a goo fix-er-uper project.

I would think quite expensive. Correct two part lobed pommel and the inlay work looks very good. How does it handle?

Brass/latten inlay is not accurate to this period.

Also, the fuller narrows near the guard- this area not being covered completely.

I've found the link to the shop and another one.

And this one.

Look at the hilt and pommel of the second sword and compare it with the Special manufacture sword EM05 of Viktor Berbekucz.

I think the quality is o.k. but it's not historical accurate.
I would say, it's too expensive.
