this is quite personal so I looking forward to your answers.
Do you think that sword can be used like Christian symbol of the cross?

the assimilation was done more than once but it isn't logical. For a sword to look like a crucifix, it should be held by the blade :-p
"Where there's a will, there's a way" or so they say.
You can probably use it as a cross if you want to, but if you want all that religious mumbo-jumbo, then you probably want a real one.1
You want to wall mount a sword as if it were a crucifix? I suppose that's possible, with the right backdrop to remove ambiguity of intent.
That's the symbolism in the original "Sleeping Beauty" cartoon Disney made, with the way the sword is shown after Philip defeats Maleficent with it. It's in-your-face symbolism for the Dragon (Satan) being overcome at the Cross.
Hana-Barbera's "Greatest Adventure" cartoon used a sword in the same way, when Adam and Eve are blocked from re-entering Eden.0
Yes. The imagery of the Cross was built into the European broadsword or bastard sword.0
The medieval sword look was devised from the Christian cross. So yes.0
What does that even mean?0
