Better pictures of each touch hole? How do they compare? If they were shot very much, the touch holes wear down.

Also pics of the muzzles?

Thanks for the additional thoughts!

To me, it is not fair to dismiss an item because it does not appear in books or in a museum.

I still have a lot to learn about styles and typeology but I...

Thanks for the similar examples!

It seems there are two very distinct types. Both perfectly represented in Broadaxe's post. Do we know anything about the differences? Difference in area of origin...

A Bardiche

Recently acquired as a hard to find addition to my pole arm collection. Of all the weapons I've held in my hands, this one feels the most impressive. Surprisingly light and fast in the hands but...

A Globular Pommeled Rapier

Slightly better than relic condition. Would this have likely been a water find?

In the blade, SAHAGON on each side, a serpent mark, and a crest like makers mark on the ricasso. I believe I've...

Excellent. You hit on all my thoughts on the oddities. Ive taken some better pictures of those areas.

I believe the broad point is a result of it being ground down at some point in its life.

An Italian Lugged Spear?

I recently picked this up from an estate sale for next to nothing. They had it described as "a sword". An interesting piece with a number of questions. Here's pictures. Would love to know others...

Seems possible. The barrels do have a stepped profile similar to a ship's cannon.

I've often wondered their true source. Seems every auction has a few of them. There must have been a huge number of them made.

Beautiful sword Philip. Love the large pommel and matching finials.

Does the blade on yours taper much? I assume it must with the weight you list.
