What kind of swords do you own with a point of balance that close to the tip? Even with falchions the point of balance is usually about 1/3 up from the pommel, and that is essentially a dedicated cutting sword. I would also say that suggesting medieval swords weren't intended to be used for cutting is fallacious, as all of the treatises have direction for cutting techniques.
I feel like I should ask please don't take my disagreement as an insult. I'm really enjoying this discussion.

Should have clarified that, I didn't mean that the point of balance is near the tip, just that it is towards it (as in further up the sword than many other swords). Slashing techniques were taught and used, but on the battlefield against armoured opponents, cleaving would have been the main way to cause damage, as chainmaile is impervious to slashing and good quality chainmaile (supported by padding) is very resistant to stabbing as the maile wraps around the point of the weapon blunting the attack.
Therefore swords were adapted to counter the armour.

It has borders though, wouldn't that imply it's a country?
Either way, that map is questionable to say the least, there's a couple of countries in there that made me wonder as well. This is the kind of stuff that should go along with more specific information.
