I have lifted the sword of Damocles

The Sword of Damocles
 Recently I showed my collection of sword themed burrs. I felt ashamed that I had not actually solved one so spent a good few hours and finally managed to solve one. This is by Alfons Eyckmans and is called the Sword of Damocles. It nearly killed me and I suspect I may have cheated and rotated a piece!!!

At last! Burrtools file required to put it back together again!
Wonderful workmanship - now I need to solve the others but I need a small lie down first!
