    border around the edges, recurved quillons with turned knob finials, knucklebow with
    turned central knob and finial.  Small bun-shaped pommel, original grip with copper wire

    Solingen bladesmiths dates back at least to the first quarter of the 17th C and produced
    generations of blade makers.  The name Geo Knecht, in various spellings, appears on a
    number of early Spanish broadswords of this type.  Light pitting and age patina.  Overall
    length 38 1/4".  This type sword was popular in the Spanish colonies of the New World and
    thought to be a favorite weapon of pirates.
