    About this item

    Chiseled steel hilt featuring reverse quillon with scroll finial, pas d’ ane attached to
    symmetrical kidney-shaped guard. Knucklebow attached to the ovoid pommel with button;
    chiseled ensuite with foliage and stands of arms in low relief; the guard bars ribbed.  Grip
    with twisted copper wire wrap and Turks heads (top one slightly damaged).  Slender earlier
    rapier blade of lens-section with 8 1/2" central fuller deeply stamped “IOHANNIS MOUM”
    flanked by seeing eye marks on both sides.  Johannes Moum was active in Solingen during
    the first half of the 17th C.  Overall length 37".   These early smallswords clearly show the
    transition from the earlier rapier, featuring shorter rapier-style blades and generally finer
    quality workmanship than most of the later smallswords.
