Hi Xas,

First thank you for the compliment! The middle sword has a guard from black horn and it's oval. Judging from the patination I belive that it's the original guard or at last a very old replacement. Do you have a guess from where this sword coming exact? Here is the original thread where I have shown it first: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...hlight=minasbad
