Sold Item Notice

The Passau wolf to the blade means a fighting blade. In addition, there is a partially legible inscription to the blade, which can be seen as "Domina". The scabbard may not be original but appears true to era.

The 38 3/4 inch blade is sound but aged and worn with some rust spots; it may well be an earlier possibly 16C blade going by what you can see of the Passau wolf design. Blade with a small amount of movement in the hilt. The brass hilt overall good for age. The wood grip is more loose but sound. The wood and brass fittings scabbard in sound order. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely.

A very nice example of a rare sword. It can be yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AF39 (1096). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
