Handle and Latch

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: I note the blacksmith who made this took time to shape the handle to fit a hand and to add a bit of flair in the arrowhead latch. I puzzled over the awkward position of the large ring should one want to add a lock. Could it be that at a later time the ring was turned ninety degrees, perhaps when the old wood cracked?
