    Good point Thom. As far as it being an all around sword, it's quite good. Quality blade and actually quite a good scabbard (which might be a 19th century "Romel" reproduction). I think the hilt is...

    I have an 1800 style Light Infantry Officer sword that has a scabbard with very similar brass mounts (except for the drag.) This is no surprise to me, but it does cast a shadow on the blade itself.

    Hello Max,
    yes the 1830 Italian NCO sword is rather different. I have thought about picking up one from time to time but never have. I have another 1800 Napoleonic/French example, but it was...

    Alas, I'm fairly certain (as everyone else who saw this but was kind enough not to mention) that the scabbard and brass is modern/repro. Oh well.

    Thanks Thom, It sure feels great in the hand. I'm not an expert on this pattern/style either but I've liked them for awhile. I'm hoping some other members will have experience/reflection about it.

    [QUOTE=Glen C.;1233958]While I don't agree that it is associated with Wells, a maple grip might certainly have been put together in the colonies/early US.
