There is no way that this could be a decoration.
I have a conscript that sort of like this. But I have no idea what this could be. I like it though and I'm going to play with these symbols what ever they are.
I'm going with the theory that it's one of the magical scripts. Because it doesn't resemble any natscript.
Do you have any idea of what the origins of this sword are? Where it came from? I'm thinking France for some reason because there's a carving of a guy on there that looks like a Frenchmen. I'd like to know what it is though.
I love things like this. Makes me giddy. What I'll do is Google magical scripts and see if I can find anything that looks like it.
I'm in love this what ever it is. So pretty.
