Hello all, There is a question that has been nagging me for some time now. I have made a few European swords over the last few years, and I usually attach the cross guard with a small TIG bead on the underside, that is then covered by the wood scales/grip. obviously this is not historical. and not the best way to do it i know. some other ways i have found by researching this online say to slide the guard onto tang hot with the slot in the guard slightly undersized.

I've decided to sell my broadsword. Originally I was making it for myself but I have my eye on a new rifle so I'm putting it up for sale. The sword is 1/4" thick of 5160 has is 30" in blade length ( Not including the tang) it is 2" at the widest and looks gorgeous. Sam Salvati, of Baltimore Knife & sword and the youtube series "Man at arms" ground the bevels with a 12" contact wheel. It is at a 320 grit. I'm asking $215 shipped for the sword blank but I am open to offers so let me know. thanks
