Sword Terminology – Pommel

Sword Terminology

Pommel: The top end of the sword’s hilt. It serves as means to secure the blade to the hilt and to provide a counterbalance for the sword. It may be a simple ball form or an elaborate figural form or an animal or human head, or other motif, as the weapon’s designer may decide.
