That's very nice Maciej. It looks a bit battle-worn - like it spent the last year conquering England.

I assume this was a commission. I would be jealous of the owner except for the somewhat similar project you have coming up for me.

I really like the form of this sword.

It would be even nicer if the blade inscriptions were inlaid. I am not aware of any blades from the period which were inscribed without inlay.

The two copper-inlaid crosses are really nice. This is a very handsome piece.
