Did you not see where I say that it is "slightly OT" Nando? :rolleyes:

I find that an occasional light hearted thread can be a pleasant diversion from too much 'seriousness'.
And no, I have...

Clearly the technical problems with this weapon do not include a lack of functionality.
Although the builder's own safety seems in doubt!
In fact the pro's of his design are rather interesting.

Intresting as it is identical to yours in all ways so we are clearly seeing a 'type' or pattern. The handle seems original as well. Also a very similar level of preservation and general...

Hi Karlo,

Nice sword.
Steel hilt? Nice silver wire binding.
Could you possibly post a picture of the hilt next to a ruler/measure so I can compare the dimensions with a childs smallsword of mine?

Excellent display, thanks for sharing.
I wish I could find more quality Greek weapons to add to my collection!
Interesting to see some stock Ottoman Turkish holster pistols in the display.
