Transitional shell hilt sidesword - DA\SS26


Despite the common appearance of this sidesword there are a few changes made to the original design of this type of sword, requested by the customer. The first and more evident one is a thumb ring, or in this case a thumb hook. The usual connection points for a thumb ring were lacking on this hilt so I placed it where it is the most functional, though it doesn't connect to anything above the quillon. The other difference is that the crossguard is not at 90° with the blade but around 100°, this to allow a more comfortable wrist position. The rest of the sword and dagger are pretty much as usual.
