#085 Irish Sword
This is a purely Irish design and one of only a few types of sword which can be attributed to a specific nationality. It's a unique design, highlighted by a spatulated crossguard and a pommel constructed as a ring with the tang passing through it. A rare sword for any collection.

The style of sword was carried by the Irish fighters in their homeland and as mercenary soldiers on the continent. They had aquired a fearsome reputation as stealthy fighters. Probably in no small part to their constant practice of cattle raiding back home.

The unquie pommel design is probably a development from the normal wheel pommel style. Some of these where made as a heavy ring with face plates. If the face plates are left off this structure you would have a ring for a pommel.
