    Book Recommendation for Understanding Marks on European Swords

    Hello All,

    In India, I come across several Import blades mounted on Indian Hilts.

    While some of the markings are clearly fakes, the rest are not. I am trying to get a better understanding on the blades, based on their markings.

    Is there a good reference guide or book, which can clearly help understand the different makers mark on the blades.

    Look forward to your references and advise.


    Regards,
    -A

    "The Broad Arrow" by Ian D Skennerton is the go to book for British markings. "1000 Marks of European Blademakers" by Zygmunt S. Lenkiewicz has many European markings.

    I always found Staffan Kinman’s book European Makers of Edged Weapons, Their Marks (2014) very useful. Probably easier to buy as well...
