Wow!

Absolutely stunning.

Would the Brass inlay have talismanic properties here? Or is this likely just decorative?

Thanks,
Leif

Hi Leif,

thank you! Frankly said, I can't answer your good question.
But what's funny, I purchased this little beauty from a german website similar like ebay.

Regards,
Detlef

I believe the answer is "yes". Bronze, brass, and copper blades appear to be talismanic, and by extrapolation, their use on blades (along with silver) is used for talismanic purposes. In fact often they appear on blades lnlaid in talismanic forms like animals, the sun, stars, other symbols, and even script.
