This is the one hundred and twenty-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the framed swords. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which sword is named the Ace of Diamonds.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The name Ace of Diamonds isn't based on the sword's history or legends. It's purely about the shape of the weapon.

Hint Two
    Compare the swords carefully.
    A's grip is the same red color as the diamond on an ace of diamonds card.
    B has a diamond-shaped decoration on the cross guard at the base of the blade and a diamond pattern on the handle.
    C has an actual diamond on the handle.

    But are any of these features enough to call the sword the Ace of Diamonds?

Hint Three
    All the swords are hung up on display and out of use now, but at the time the Ace of Diamonds earned its moniker, it would have been used as a weapon.

    Perhaps its opponents called it so based on the shape it had from their point of view? In other words, from the end of the blade?

Super Hint
    Look carefully at the shape of each of the blades as seen from the end of the blade, including the cross guard. One of them must have a shape befitting the name Ace of Diamonds.

    The ace of diamonds is a playing card. What shape are playing cards?
