Sales enquiries

Please note: the shell guard and a couple of "divits" are missing, but the blade is so exceptional, it is well worth taking the time and trouble to getting reproduction / replacement parts. There are specialist companies out there for this, including Jacobs Armoury.



The 30 1/8 inch colichemarde blade is exceptionally well blue and gilt etched, a little rust towards to the tip well away from the etching. The hilt is lose with shell guard and a couple of divits missing; this is a version of small sword that had no crossguard (the chain is the "guard"). The scabbard also has an issue in that the chape falls off, but the scabbard should be an easy enough repair for anyone.

A great blade with a lot of the hilt area remaining, enough to hopefully turn into a gem; £400. Please quote item reference S30. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0621-1m (1.106).
