Stumbled across this older thread of a piece formerly held by Fernando.
http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...ight=Smallsword

I'm wondering if anyone else thinks the patterning looks similar to the subject of this thread

In my opinion the blade clearly displays a pattern welded structure and NOT a simple lamination.

The streaks of differently toned steel imply that two different types of steel were used. Simply laminated blades do not show such high contrast between layers.
