Default Boar sword cross bar

I would like to replicate the cross bar for a boar hunting sword. I have seen pictures of such swords with the bar installed, but would like to know the exact construction details. One can certainly come up with multitude of ideas, but I would like to know the authentic one.

Does anyone have such a complete sword, so he could post pictures?

Hello,

this is a so called German "Sauschwert" (sow sword) and here is the only picture of the spines I can find.
