While I have not tested the metal yet, I tend to agree with everything that has been said here, that is:

* the blade is older than the rest
* the scabbard is of better craftsmanship than the hilt
* the hilt is the least attractive and likely the latest part of the sword, but specifically made for this sword

These things pretty much confirm my original thoughts.

Thanks for your input, gentlemen!
