it looks much more a weapon for honest warrior, no more
how spent time (and money) by etching ...
even the thickness of the blade (at back) ?? by engravings at the size of a hair
the pictures have been took with a "macro numeric function"
this increases wrongly the size of blade
the real dimensions are
46 cm overall
blade 29,50 cm only
without heel 8cm and 4,50cm for the tip
the blade is from 4,50cm to 3,50cm wide
and, from 0,50 cm to 0,30 cm thickness
less than a 1/10mm
no offence, but your interesting suggestion seems a bit random, no?
with my best regards
