I was never a fan of that pommel type, but that one is really nice (as is the whole sword.)

Congratulations Doug! Credit as well to Maciej for the magnificent work on this sword. I second Nathan regarding the graceful look of the guard. I am looking forward to seeing the scabbard and hearing your review of the whole package.

Thanks guys. It's almost a somewhat angular Oakeshott type C pommel, isn't it, except for the vestigial upper guard. I'll post pictures of the scabbard when I get them.

What a beautiful package. Everything about it is great. The scabbard is especially nice- not to detract from the sword of course!

I must agree! I like things simple and clean. The brown on basic black turned out really nice, accenting the more ornate chape. Maciej told me he had had something special in mind for the chape and did not disappoint.

Here's some additional historical info from Maciej:

"One more thing about that chape. This is type IIIb (Kazakevičius, 1998) and this is based on original find from North-eastern Europe. It is dated to first half of 11th century.

So, this one match our sword perfectly. Belting style appears in manuscripts a bit later (around 1060-1080), however it must have its beginnings and variations decades earlier."
