Default Help on Dating and finding informations on a early medieval pattern welded sword


This sword has been dated by the auction house as 9th or 10th Century. My first impression was that this blade could date from the 5th to 6th Century. So I hope to find further informationís (possible dating, origin, etc.) and pictures of similar swords to compare.

The blade shows signs of two twisted rods in the upper two third of the blade center, changing into straight lines towards the point.
