Norman King sword, 12thC.
This is a sword in norman type from 12th century, with brazil-nut shaped pommel, wide long blade, more dedicated for a rider, I believe.
This is actually a sword based on my recently made 'Richard the Lionheart Sword' design. More about this sword here.
We can see here very coomon for this period belting style (one of possible interpretations) and also classic tones combinations with high contrast between belt and scabbard (light and dark colors). This contrast and colors we will find in many medieval manuscripts.
Scabbard is simple, with U-shaped chape in 12th century style, made with forged steel.
According to historical, medieval sources we will find no decorations on scabbard and belt. This is very simple, strong and functional equipment.
