Things in Eric’s office
The sword on Eric’s wall has been changed and this is the first one that we saw season 1 and 2. It is a shashka , a kind of sabre used by the Cossacks. The one on Eric’s wall looks more elaborate and made of gold so perhaps a sign of the importance of the owner and used for ceremonial occasions as part of a Dress uniform than an actual weapon used in battle.
Some more more facts about shashka and Cossacks.
Yep, that was a Russian/Ukrainian sword there for a while. (And personal “blergh.” I hate Cossacks. But that’s nothing to do with Eric.).
Eric probably had a number of swords over the centuries from the various countries he traveled thru.
