admin wrote:Phil, every single example that I have seen in real life is hollow (as are many original large wheel pommels). As far as I am aware they are forged from iron sheet in two halves and then brazed together. I would imagine that it is therefore quite tricky to get the weight on them correct, though maybe weight can be added to the hollow inside if necessary (though I have no evidence that this was done).
