Well. it has arrived and here are a few new pictures taken after I did a light cleaning of the blade. The blade is laminated and it is quite clear when holding it in the sunlight but I don't think it can be seen in the pictures. The hilt as can be seen has a piece broken out of the top that needs to be glued back into position. There are no designs engraved into the rather plain copper guard .
The sheath is missing one of its brass bands which will be quite easy to replace. Any opinions on the best way to proceed with the hilt repairs including what will be the best glue for the wood and where to obtain cutlers resin "or pine resin to make my own" to reset the blade with would be greatly appreciated. The reason I am asking about glue is because what I used to use is no longer being made.

Regards,
Robert
