Looks like you nailed one of my favorite sword designs, along with some nice customization features. Nice work of the pommel. I envy the owner.

That's another beauty. The work on the steel looks super-clean and right. Do we know if rain guards were in use this early?

Another beauty. The rain guard adds a nice aesthetic touch. I particularly like the detail work on the scabbard.

Thank you Happy Rainguards were in use probably in the middle of 13th century and they became universal in the 14th century.
Solingen sword is dated 1280-1310 and could be used for a lot of years.

Why does everyone consider in a rain guard first? Drapping a cloak over your scabbard would protect it more and Medieval scabbards were very tight fitting. I consider it like Roland Warzecha does, it nice griping surface for your thumb or fingers for certain sword grips, like a leather covered ricasso but for one handed swords.

I am under the impression that many enthusiasts do not in fact consider it as a "rain guard," but continue to use the term as most everyone familiar with European swords understands what a "rain guard" is!
