I`m looking for some examples of XII-XIII century swords grip - in good condition in museums.
It is interesting because the modern reproductions are very varied in form and construction.

If you know some good preserved examples - place the link or picture, please.

THANKS.

It's not great, but there's a black and white photo of the original Sword of Saint Maurice of Turin here: http://www.myArmoury.com/review_alb_sosmt.html. Working from a colour photo in a book that I have, it appears as though the grip only partially survived. It appears to be a yellowish brown in colour.
