Blade showing extensive patina and fine pitting throughout, both sides with brass inlaid maker's mark at the lower area. Large iron hilt mounts including sword catcher like guard with downturned quillons, massive disk pommel with grooved star symbol and very nice leather wrapped grip in the setting of iron cage like bars. All solid and in battle ready condition, retaining good sharp edges, Feels Fantastic in hand.
2 & 3/4" wide at ricasso
