Can anyone help me find pictures of the blade of this sword? I think it has one of those single edged blades that were common in the Baltic area during the late viking/ early medieval era but it is hard to tell. It looks so thin, I guess it could be corrosion but there doesn't seem to be a trace of a fuller either...

No fuller + narrow blade = very very probably single edged blade. But I would love to see complete blade.
