Is there a reason for displaying them on the wood like that? like if I walked into a 1500's armory would the swords  be presented like that?

yes it's cheap fairly durable long term and metal on metal can have bad reactions and scratch things. thats why you cant mix metals in watercooling. the water and electricity speed up the process, but with antique swords a process that could take decades is still a problem, because you want it to last forever. all the metal here is rubber coated except the steel bolts and they are not a concern.

got a new napoleonic Calvary saber and a kukri. thinking blucher m1811 blade on an austrian m1837 mostly because its so far outside of a regulation blucher hilt, but the blade weighs a ton. thick as a pinky finger at the spine. kukris a full tang late 1800's- early 1900's british influenced design, but not military/special forces. the special forces dropped the cho to lighten it.


anyone else getting a new pointy boi for christmas this year?
