Fernando means that it is strange that the upper jaw terminates in an 'wavy long shape', which is not functional.
Also to bear in mind that the Sahaguns were extremely famous and therefore had their name assaulted by many other smiths. For a start the correct spell appears to be SAHAGUN , as per Palomares nomina and, more importantly, per Jehan Lhermitte, in his work Le Passetemps, written by the 1600's. Also the Sahagun mark should be found on the blade (fullers), if this were te real thing.
