    I find the Bashford Dean catalogue somewhat useful and Arms&Armor just did a bit on their blog including Washington's sword with the pierced hilt parts. I had recently adopted an example that can be...

    The guard is a fascinating assembly of motifs.

    I'd love to know if you can spot G or GG at the base of the blade, under the langet.

    In my image files, I do have a bright etched blade of the...

    I wanted to add regarding the scabbard cross section, my Starr 1818 has that form. Maybe not knife edge like but definitely round on the spine and wedge at the edge.

    Isn't that still a little less than specific question? Most that I can think of, aside from the gussied up military field models still go back to light dress swords that were around decades before...

    Can you be a little more specific as to a timeline and type? Are you addressing the slim degen type of the mid 19th century? The larger sabres? Later 1889 types?

    Curious minds and all that.

    It seems far too long since there have been additions to this thread, so I will add these few pictures here. Adopted from a French lady on ebay, this late 18th century cutie is proving somewhat...

    I first noticed it the end of October last year and Mark did pop up in a thread here and then to me in fb mentioning it as the move on or about 10/21.

    Does a magnet stick to the wire? It has the look of iron. I have a sword with single strand copper but that is fairly evident. Many metals will darken, so without the sword in hand, it could be...
