The '1796' could be a British officer's private purchase sword. Doesn't appear to be a Prussian Blucher 1811 variant. Officers ones vary considerably, have different grip 'ears' and even languets...

I gather that Colichemardes were in general all around a metre, considereably longer than an average smallsword. George Washington is frequently painted with his favourite colichemarde.

Would have had a ring thru the hole used to lift the locking mechanism. A more agricultural 'pruning' knife or scythe, than a gut-ripper.



Like these, a mix of antique and modern ring-pull...

I've never seen one either. I suspect as they are utility/eating knives, they are kept in with the other cooking/eating utensils in a pack rather than carried for instant access as a weapon. Or...

The join between the barrel and the trunnions looks a lot like a corroded arc welding bead, I'd think a mould pattern would have a smoother transition. I don't think Heinrich VIII had any arc-welders.

I've made a few for my washer-less swords that slip over the blade by tracing the scabbard mouth on an appropriate scrap of leather glued to a piece of red felt. I then cut the outline with a sharp...

Yup. My Salawar 'Yataghan' for another comparison, and a khyber choori, a smaller 'kitchen knife' version. The larger has a slight but noticeably recurved spine. For a Pathan, EDC - Don't leave home...

From the above photos, I'm putting my money on it being a flat blade welded to the square centre piece, as will be the 'hammer head'. The small hole for the top spear finial does not bode well, and a...

Looks much like my Bedouin sabre (missing a band on the pommel area) and my Bedu yataghan. Both have extensive inscribed decorations not apparent in the overall pics.

Cutlass with basket hilt?

Just acquired at auction this shortish sabre/cutlass/hanger with a 31in length overall.

Rather odd (half?) basket hilt with wavey bars.

Not the best picture. Should get the weapon in a little...
