Jeroen Zuiderwijk Posted December 10, 2009 Share Posted December 10, 2009 (edited) Another image just to add to the confusion A broad sax with solid iron pommel. They do not exist, but here is one example. There is no rivet block. The tang is peened flush with the end of the pommel. This is not a scandinavian find. It is of Langobardian context. Ah, yes I now remember having seen other Langobardian broad saxes with iron pommels/end plates. Thanks for remembering me:) I don't know very much about Langobardian saxes, except that they seem to be fairly similar to the more northern versions, but with some differences in the details such as this. N.b. that's a pretty short grip too for a broad sax by the looks of it.
