Period 18th century
Price £400.00

 ADD TO CART

This is a typical 18th-century Spanish weapon, designed to be stuffed down a musket barrel when out on a boar hunt or in a military context. Amazingly, it appears to have most of the original scabbard, with the top chape of pressed tin with a decorative motif. The bottom chape is missing.

The blade is 9.75" long and nearly 1.75" across at the forte. There are some stress splits on the blade near the point, with some grey patina throughout. There is a single worm hole and some damage to the collar of the horn hilt. There is a split in the brass ferrule at the pommel.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
