The art of manufacturing decorated edged weapons has already existed for many centuries. It absorbed rich traditions and historical experience of different nations from ancient times till the present days. Sabres and small swords, broadswords and rapiers, dirks and hunting daggers were consideres pieces off art if they were decorated with carving and engraving, gold plating and embossing, precious metals and stones. Such objects were usually intended for present, awards, diplomatic gifts and court ceremonies, where a high technical value and a rich artistic decoration were naturally combined. This unique art resched its full flowering in the first part of the 19th century, but by the beginning of the next century the tradition to create such kind of weapon has interrupted and, as it seemed, forever.
