Indeed. Assuming it's indeed an artillery projectile I'm guessing maybe something for a bombard? But I'm speaking from near total ignorance.



Good luck with the surgery, I hope it helps!

Hah, yeah, I was looking at the wrong row header in the numerals table.

The first two characters might be letters; นพ.

I think they could also be Lao numerals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lao_script#Numerals) (but if so the picture looks like it's upside down).

I'm pretty sure it's stone, and just from memory and from comparing it to the size of the sabatons in the picture I would guess it was near 30cm in diameter (but I am not great at estimating sizes)....

Indeed it is! It's a nice place not too far from my home, that's crammed chock full of old trinkets. Kind of like a tiny museum. I stop by there from time to time just to take a little tour around...

That looks like a fun sword, Rick. Is that a T-section at the forte?

It looks mean. Almost like it's meant to slice bite-sized bits off of and maybe, uhm, "peel" the opponent. *shiver*

In the end some poor sod (who apparently is not following these boards) paid 1101 plus 9% auction fee and shipping for a Shaver Cool saber. :eek:

FWIW, according to a Bengali friend of mine, pata just means sword - like many of these collector's terms I suppose.

And I was under the impression that the term kirach referred more specifically...

Lovely sword. One of these is very high on the wish list. On Walloon swords the SAHAGVM is also combined with a Wolf of Passau but of course there's only a single fuller.

Can't be much help with...

That almost looks like a smallsword blade. Did not realize that those were mounted on estocs/tucks. Is it as light as the smallsword ones?

These are very interesting looking. It reminds me of Tebu swords and daggers, with that stabby pommel.

Possibly relevant, from the Dutch hallmarks (https://www.925-1000.com/Fnetherlands_Date_Code.html) page on that site:
