Sales enquiries

Inscribed "Rl fábrica de armas de Toledo Ano de 182.o" to the twin fullered blade, the hilt and grip of M1832 form, this is either an earlier version of that sword, or an earlier blade rehilted. We have been unable to find another like it in reference books or online except for some text that an 1815 model existed with twin fullers.

The blade, clearly inspired by the French An XIII blade but a little cruder, is in very good condition except the very tip is gone, indicating a strike on target. Blade has a little movement in the hilt / grip. The solid brass hilt / guard aged but good. The leather grip worn and a little dry, but good. The twisted grip wire bindings are all all there if hidden under grime, indicating this sword was held a lot by burly sweaty palms. The heavy steel scabbard is mostly good if aged but with a small king and rust hole towards the drag. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely.
