All this mess of recreating legions and legionaires actually started with Henri II Valois in 1558. They had a bad start at the battle of Gravelines.

Felines that are plantigrads or something alike. Not needed really.

The sabre arrived. Very nice, very sharp. I have to decide if I touch the thumbring or it remains that crooked (but safe) way. A...

I would say the boxer uprising in China around 1900. I would say the legionar in the first picture is the one in the middle (because of the length of the bayonet!).

I know of a similar sword to the one opening this thread. Hilt seems older with four screws but not frame. And the date is 1760 instead of 1720. What makes me think 1720 was a sales pitch (1760 maybe...

It weights 850grams for some 45cm. The grip is solid iron and the sail is quite thick so it could be used for punching.

It is tinned. And on the tin it was covered in black paint, possibly made...

Possible German XIXth century sword

I have found this poor thing. Over cleaned it is difficult to say if the pieces were original to each other.

The only relevant thing is that the little silver anchor with a Second Reich imperial...

Hello Fernando. I believe the Hortuņo sword is artistically not in the style of early XVIIth century but rather c1650. The 1900 catalogue of Real Armeria is plagued with errors and legends.

These 2 are real XVIIIth century three fullered blades from Spanish 1728 models. Three fullered blades although they exist, are a minority of 1728 blades. Most are non fullered or single fullered.
