Das gute Stück ist noch 569 mm Lang, Griff 211 mm, Klinge 358 mm, Breite 58 mm
My guess the text. If it's the drawing, it means that it's compressed vertically. Plus a 51mm grip is impossible to hold on to. A 41mm grip is still surprisingly large, but at least you can get your hands around it (as in your thumb against your fingers).Chris wrote:I just checked: these are the measurements published along with the drawing in "Das frühmittelalterliche Gräberfeld bei Weingarten" by Roth / Theune, Stuttgart 1995 ....
so whats wrong, drawing or text?? *sigh*
Article on European pattern-welding by Stefan Mäder. The page linked to above has two pictures of (recently) polished seax-blades. The rest of the article is an interesting read as well.
