30 1/4” d.e. blade with short broad fuller. Iron hilt with recurved cross guard, oval side guard with broad thumb ring opposite, and kite shaped pommel, all chiseled with stylized foliage and bands. Fine wood grip carved in chevrons each side with recessed divider along the tang. Possibly leather covered originally, now showing fine deep glossy patina. No evidence of ever having wire wrap. Hilt and blade show uniform wear with some spotty pitting as expected for the period. Blade back with lamination flaw at the forte. Superior quality of a type which served through the Thirty Years' War and English Civil Wars.
