This sword was extensively customized by it's original owner to make it more on par with the historical Type XIV. The central blade ridge was removed and the whole sword was given a lenticular cross section and distal taper via slack belt sander. The sword was then sent to me for some clothing by it's new owner.

First off, the grip was torn down and reprofiled. Risers were added and a new cover from oxblood leather was done. The grip was bound in hemp twine to give it texture and definition.

The wood-core scabbard was given a simple riser detail to accent the blade shape and wrapped in black leather. A mild steel chape was added to the package.

The oxblood suspension is one of my own creation, which uses a single hand-tied point that is then attached to a simple tooling leather loop via Chicago screw. The resulting suspension achieves the function of a frog, while having a nice look inspired by antiquity. This suspension works very well on lighter/shorter swords, and goes exceptionally well if someone has a nice belt already which they wish to wear the sword with. I do another variant of this suspension which uses a single buckle instead of a Chicago screw for those wanting someone to look more uniquely period.

Your usual really good job.

Is that the original DSA pommel? I've never seen one like that with the swollen, bubbled area in its center.
