Pleidelsheim sword, a bit of help please
Happy Holidays All!

I am having a commission of the Pleidelsheim sword made, but have a question. On Barta's recreation he shows one side of the grip metal covered, the other wooden. I can fins no good photos of both sides on the internet. Does anyone know if this is correct, or should both sides be symmetrical and metal covered?

Thanks for any help

Hi Robert,

Yes, that's correct. Only half of the hilt is sheathed in Rhine gold, as you can see in this photo:-

Best of the season to you and yours.
