Fantastic sword Tim - was it inspired by an original? What techniques did he use to accomplish the hilt decoration/details?

Thanks for posting.

Will

The original sword was found in the Danube by Budapest and now it is in the Bp. History Museum in Buda Castle. The blank sword (no fittings or scabard etc) was found together with a petrified chainmail glove/hand still gripping the handle.

If it won't look older I would guess it fell in the river during the mongolian siege in 1241, because I don't know about any other military event there before that.

Stunning replica of a stunning original. I have a very poor photograph of the original but that's about it.

Here's a pic of the original from the Museum.
The sword feels great. Robert is a master at his craft and it shows. I'll snap a full length shot of it later.
