Yeah, Brazil nut of the " D " shaped kind mostly because it's the pommel on my Ravenwolf sword and I drew it exactly like I like it.

Obviously the pommel has to look good and be historically correct with the rest of the sword, so I also like many other types of pommels in the context of other swords, but I chose the Brazil Nut also taken in isolation as a sculptural shape.

Oh, and I also appreciate the handshake grip of earlier one handers and Viking swords.

I did not expect these answers to the question, "What pommel type best represents your body type?". Weird.

Probably because me and most others read the question too fast and ended up answering as if the question was more
" Which is your favorite pommel type ". Wink Laughing Out Loud Blush

Body type ...... same answer for me as I'm sort of chunky and bulgy like a Brazil Nut. Big Grin Cool

I also thought it said what is your favorite pommel type, it is weird how easily I misread the question.
