I really love them. They are so archaic, functional, with nary an embellishment. Truly fighting sword with battlefield being its home. I can hardly imagine one of those hanging on the wall, although I did see examples with silver-clad handles. But even those were austerely brutal.
I have one only, and have shown it here already. Now I need to find another mis-identified one for $100 with no watchers:-)
