Thread: indentify the mark

    Question indentify the mark

    I have been trying to get some information on a sword over in the "Beginner's Forum" and it was suggested that I post my "reasonable facsimile" of the mark here.

    The piece is at least 20 years old, but probably older.

    Has anyone seen this before or can they give me a decent direction to look?

    Thanks!

    Hello, Mr. Bennett.

    I've seen this mark before. It appeared on some swords made in Toledo (Spain) in the 1960's, maybe 1970's. This "Excalibur mark" have some relation with a bunch of swords made for Oskar Kolombatovich, a well-known fencer residing in Spain at that time, who was interested in traditional swordmanship, and therefore they are supposed to be reproductions of a somewhat "practical" standard.

    I have no more real information regarding this maker. I've seen both rapiers and medieval-styled swords with this mark. What style is your sword?

    Mr. Perez,


    Thank you very much!

    The link to the original thread (with images) can be found


    here .

    It was suspected that the sword was somehow tied to Kolombatovich, but the mark remained a mystery.


    After a several decades of curiosity about the mark, I will now have to find some other mystery to take its place.

    Again, thank you.
