Hunting Sword, Brass Hardware & Rosewood Grip [#448]

Your Price: $215.00
Part Number:448
This sword appeared in France about 1657. It was used to dispatch wounded game. The military, attracted by its interesting style, adopted it. Officers on both sides wore it during the Revolutionary War. The hilt is a double chain with round links; the guard has the early clam shell motif so often seen on these swords. Grips are polished horn or rosewood with twisted wire in the spiraled grooves. There is a running fox etched into the 25" blade, the trademark of the British sword maker Samuel Harvey. Because of the size of the clam shell, we can date this sword to be circa 1740. Brass hardware with rosewood grip.
