Wow, really wicked looking, well done. What is the purpose of the rings on the back side of the blade? I've seen that before in weapon imagery?

Thanks, It was a fun little project. I am copying the rings from the imagery that i can remember of eastern style weapons. I believe that a lot of the extras on the weapons were meant to distract, confuse, and intimidate the enemy. some of them were meant to spray or catch the blood, again to intimidate. I was surprised to find how much extra weight the rings added, so there could be something to that. This weapon was made for my Brother, who is a computer gamer, and a fan of the World of Warcraft. So I wanted to make him a fanciful war trophy.
