Hello people. I'm rather fascinated with this sword from the Deutsch Historisches Museum Berlin:
http://www.dhm.de/datenbank/dhm.php?seite=5&fld_0=AK004317

The hilt is very elegant and its Xa blade is freakin huge, 96cm long (almost 38 inches) and it is 5.1cm (2") wide. I might get it replicated, but I would need full pictures, not just of a hilt and first third of the blade... It seems it is the same sword as Oakeshott's Xa.13, but in Records there is only a drawing, not the real picture... Although I guess Oakeshott's drawing is precise enough... So, anybody got some pictures of it?

The Albion Ritter hilt is based on it. The blade looks a bit different and it lacks in the inlay, of course.

It's an amazing sword; much nicer than Oakeshott's drawing would indicate and far more impressive than (no offense intended) Albion's downsized version. I would also like to get it replicated, but to really do it full justice with the silver inlay by a really good person like Jeff Helmes would cost thousands of $.

Thanks! I forgot about these pictures, I just remembered I have already seen them... I would love to include inlay if I actually do order a replica of it, I will try to talk Alojz Krišto into doing it, I know he wouldn't be as expensive as more famous makers...
