5 1/8” clipped point blade struck with pairs of crescents along the back. The point of particularly elegant form. The hilt with crescent decorated ferrule and pommel. Wood grip shaped to grasp with the thumb and first two fingers and expanded to the top accommodating the last two fingers in an incomplete closure. That feature rarely seen but known on European swords. This example probably accommodated a battle injury as it is unlikely that a warrior with fingers compromised by arthritis or other natural cause would have the ability to otherwise, fight to the death.
