Late to this and surprisingly parallel to another discussion elsewhere.

I had become enamored with horsehead pommels a decade or so ago. In the process of collecting images, I had come across these flat bladed and circle etched examples. Apparently, fairly distant in time but in the past few years have been reborn by companies such as Universal Swords. The hilt castings on these fairly nice until comparing to period swords. The blades though should be an easy evidence to realize. I had been apprised of the reproductions during my adventures of appreciation. I am linking here my horse folder. Far from complete and kind of something down on my lists of harvesting. Also a side by side with a period sword. There is currently an Irish presentation sword on ebay listed by MDL, which may be the one sold through Christies some years ago.

Cheers
