This swords blade derives directly from the cinquenda popular in the 15th century. The preference for a short blade is further demonstrated in the falchion which achieved great popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries and may derive from the Roman gladius. The hilt form with classical head guard terminals and black moor head pommel identify it to Northern Italy, probably Milan where those motifs were used on swords of wealthy and powerful owners.
