Damascus blade Wakefield(ish) sword

Here's a really interesting thing: a decorative damascus bladed short sword inspired by, but not exactly replicating, the Royal Armouries IX.144 Wakefield sword, made with a damascus / watered / layered steel blade, guard, and pommel; and with a rosewood grip and a matching brown leather belt sheath. Cool looking for costume or wall, but not intended for use (the tang is weak).
