    ANTIQUE WEAPON STORE


    Gilded brass hilt featuring straight guard with acorn finials, spherical pommel with raised
    lion faces on four quadrants and scrolling foliage inbetween; large button finial.  Quillon
    block decorated ensuite with lion face on each side.  Spiral wood grip with elaborate
    alternating twisted and straight brass wire wrap; gilded brass ferrules with engraved
    scrolling foliage top and bottom.  Unusual straight 35 1/4" blade; single-edged with single
    fuller at the back edge for the first 20 inches and double-edged and unfullered for the
    remainder of its length.  Blunted tip with three small punched holes.  Engraved copper-filled
    wheel on one side.  Blade shows file marks, light pitting, forging flaws, and one small area
    of delamination on one side in the fuller (see photo).  Hilt retains approximately 50% of its
    original gilding.  Overall length 45", weight 3 pounds 13 ounces (1734 g).  Unlike any
    executioner sword we have ever encountered, but definitely made for that purpose.
