    Hi Eric,

    Is it signed Grimbo like mine and Don's swords? Do you have a link of photos you can PM me? I'm not in the market for any swords but would love to see it.

    Cheers,

    Hi Marius,

    Yes mine has an edge. Not the sharpest sword I've seen but it could do its job.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for the posts gentlemen,

    Its good so see another sword with the same signature. The 1909 date also helps out a lot. I wonder if Mr. Grimbo was a swordmaker or at least dealer who provided...

  8. Patton's saber is still alive!

    Hello all,

    So I just found out that there is a military unit in the US that still actively teaches mounted saber. The Maryland Defense Force, a state guard, has a mounted unit called Cavalry Unit...

    So I just saw this thread come back up and I want to state I totally agree with what I said several years ago about a baskethilted broadsword. A couple weeks ago a friend and I were engaging in some...

    Hi Juan,

    I will defer to your greater experience. I assumed some of the later Destreza works would be applicable to a sword like this but you are right it seems like they all focus on sabers and...

    Hi Tom,

    How would yours compare with mine as far as being rubbed down? Spanish fencing divided the sword blade into various short segments. The closer to the hilt the stronger the sword is. The...

    Hi Juan,

    I thought I read somewhere these were produced until 1901, but my Spanish is poor so I could be wrong. It is an excellent sword though. I've decided to allow time to bring the patina...
  13. Another Spanish officer's sword

    Hello all,

    I just bought another Spanish officer's sword. I think this one was a good deal too (although not as good as my last one). This one is marked "TOLEDO" and "1868" on either side of the...

    Hi Tom,

    I'm not the best to judge since I haven't fenced with foil since about 1994 or 1995 in high school. But in my uninformed opinion it is a very well made and serviceable sword. The...

    Hi Juan,

    Thanks for your reply. There doesn't seem to be a date on this sword. The maker's mark is a bit rusty and illegible so it might have been stamped in there and I just can't make it out. It...
