C17th English Rapier Blades

I read a long thread on another forum (myarmoury.com - which seems to have an IT problem with admitting new members right now) about C17th English rapier blades.
That discussed the English...

Yes, Feldegen or Haudegen, northern European mid/late C17th to early C18th. From the looks of the side loops, there should be pierced guards in those. You can see the grooves where they sat. They're...

This looks more like it, but don't know any more on Moreno. 'Before 1700' may be too late.

Thanks. I'll translate that if possible. Now wondering if it is a C - which for some reason I didn't look at. It's a bit malformed for that letter though.

I pasted them into the word doc to try and avoid that. There's two shots of each side of the ricasso.

Another shot attached.

Not sure why they came out so large. They're clearer at a smaller scale like the attachment.

Same mark either side of the ricasso, just tried different angles to photograph it.

Hello,

I am excitedly awaiting delivery of a sword tomorrow which has the blade stamped to one Heinrich Kolle along with a Passau wolf of Solingen. The hilt is mid C17th English.

I can't find...

That's a good idea. I've often read that they're cabalistic numbers, but with no explanation as to why *those* particular numbers were chosen. I like that suggestion.

Looks for the all the world like a zischagge (European cavalry helmet) of the 16202-70s, minus its tail.

AVB Norman is a key purchase.

I'm into mid C17th British swords (eg ECW era) so Stuart C Mowbrays 'British Military Swords Volume 1: 1600 - 1660'. It's mainly photos, but a great reference. ISBN...

Apologies for resurrecting this after such a long gap, but is there any evidence that there were two side guards on this? I can't see a screw hole on the pommel or signs of the recurved bars sitting...

I suspect the name came later, though I don't know what the wire knots on sword hilts were called in say the C17th.

Hi,

Jim,

Apologies for any confusion - I was referring to the bandoliers being commonly used by Victorians but rarely in the mid C17th, the one example excepted.

Mortuary Sword - first use of the term?

Hello,

I've searched about and not found any sort of answer.
