FINE AND RARE GERMAN HAND AND A HALF SWORD C.1620. This magnificent sword was surely made to order for a wealthy and probably titled owner. It is a hand and a half broadsword made for use in one hand or two, depending on the situation. It is related to a group of swords dating to the early 17th century, mainly decorated with animal head pommels and quillon terminals. The use of human heads is less well known, but several examples exist. A notable example, evidently related to and possible by the same artisan is in the collection of the Historsche Museum, Dresden, #VI/341. Features distinctive to both examples are the form of the ears and the wedge shaped rolled collar. The base of the 32 3/4" double edged blade is decorated with a scrolling tendril from which three flowers bloom, growing from a fruit. The reference is obviously to the cycle of birth and renewal a popular theme offering hope in troubled times.

Extremely Rare German Landsknecht Hand-and-a-half Sword, ca. 1520. The Landsknecht mercenaries of the Germanic countries were among the most fearsome warriors in all of history. In a time when there were no standing armies as we know today, any king or magnate who could afford them wanted to hire the Landsknechts. The Katzbalger (literally “cat skinner”) was the well-known short sword with the S-shaped guard of twisted iron. Genuine Katzbalgers are very rare and usually bring well over $10,000 when they come up for sale. However, what is even more scarce is the two-handed or hand-and-a-half varieties with S-shaped guard. A two- handed example sold at auction in Munich about 15 years ago for about $16,000 USD and has since changed hands several times for ever increasing prices. The example offered here is the only hand-and-a-half sword of this type we have ever encountered. It features a very large distinctive S-shaped guard of twisted iron with fluted bun finials. Ovoid pommel with a pair of incised lines at the base, mounted on what is apparently the original leather-wrapped two-stage wood grip. The guard is loose due to shrinkage of the grip and the lack of a ferrule which once was likely mounted at its base. Thick hollow-ground 42″ blade of triangular section with a latten-filled cross mark, designed to pierce the weak spots in an opponent's armor. Metal shows hand forging, light pitting, and a rich dark patina on the guard. Overall length 54″. Such a sword would have been carried by a veritable giant for the time. This type sword is often considered the Holy Grail for collectors of weapons of the age of the armored knight.

Fine North European Two Handed Sword Dating To Circa 1520. A fine, rare and well proportioned North European two handed  sword (hand and a half sword).  The hilt, which retains much of its original blackening to the iron parts, is an impressively chiselled example of the early 16th century armourer’s craft. The flat, downwardly curved quillons,  widening towards square-ended terminals, with central rope-twist decoration in raised relief on both sides, plus the deeply grooved pommel with fluted ridges, mark this sword out as a member of a distinct and unique group of North European two-handed swords. So far as we know, only six of this type are presently identified. The broad blade is single edged with a thick spine beneath which two fullers each side extend from the hilt for 40% of its length, after which the blade is double edged and of lenticular section. Three crescent-shaped notches are applied at the end of the spine. An armourers mark of facing crescents terminating in ovals, with a further oval imbetween,  flanked by trefoils of diamond shaped dots is present on one side a short distance from the hilt. The marks are most likely of a Passau smith. The hub of the cross is formed as a thick bar of rectangular section. The distinctive quillons are rounded nearest the block and expand in vertically flattened form towards their terminals and are decorated with raised diagonally grooved rope-like lines along the middles which are flanked by further incised lines. Two horizontal ring guard bars of thick round section are applied to the sides, each formed with two raised knops with similar “roped” finish. Beneath the cross, a downward facing round section bar of open crescent shape is applied. Two further crescents, also decorated with knops, are forged onto the terminals of this bar and rise at 45 degrees to attach to, and strengthen, the side rings. The pommel is of upturned pear shape and formed with eight equally spaced deep grooves which radiate from the pommel top to its base. The surfaces of the ridges imbetween are cut with narrow lines alternating in vertical, and diagonally vertical form, similar in depth and spacing as the lines which form the rope designs on the guard. The guard and the pommel retain much of the original  blackened finish. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. The blade length is 41.5 inches (105.5 cm) and overall is 52 inches (132 cm) long. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century such  swords were quite common on European battlefields, carried by  armies fighting wars almost permanently during a time of shifting religious  and political change. As fashions moved towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. One fine example, almost identical to ours, is illustrated in “Records of the Medieval Sword”, Ewart Oakeshott, St Edmundsbury Press, 1991, page 241, which sold through Peter Dale Ltd of London before 1982. The same example is illustrated in “The Price Guide to Antique Edged Weapons”, Leslie Southwick, Antique Collectors Club, 1982, page 29, fig 49). Oakeshott comments that another sword in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (Inventory Number M.602-1927) and illustrated in “European Swords”, Anthony North, page 6 fig 3, has an identical hilt apart from the guard having one branch. A third example is illustrated in “Edged Weapons in Sweden”, Staffan Kinman, Stockholm, 2014, page 29, fig 26b, and is similar to the British Museum example. Oakeshott comments on another in Zurich (Schweizerisches Landesmuseum Inventory Number LM 16933). A fifth sword with similar characteristics is also illustrated in Southwick (as above) fig 48, its location unknown.

RARE SPANISH OR ITALIAN WHEEL POMMEL RAPIER C.1530. No single form or date can be given to the point at which the rapier evolved. However, accepting the common definition, this example comes very close to that point, retaining the principal attributes of the Gothic broadsword, straight cross guard and wheel pommel. Its simple counter guard is identical to one on an example in the Sir James Mann collection dated to the 1520s. Other examples with variations of the guard are dated earlier, however, they all evidently have cutting/thrusting blades. The heavy diamond section blade of this example marked VALENCIA (sic.) distinguishes it as among the very earliest swords made primarily for thrusting with in respect to then evolving sword technique. 35 3/4" length blade. Allowing for the commerce in weapons, the universal popularity of imported weapons and the blade inscription, it is reasonable to conclude that it was produced for the Spanish market and as such might be linked to the conquistadors. Of the few related examples, it appears that several are in excavated condition and nearly all in public collections.

South German Or Swiss Hand And A Half Sword Circa 1560. A scarce and attractive “hand and a half” sword dating to the mid 16th century. A well made example, finely balanced in hand, well constructed and in good  condition. The distinctive hilt is similar to contemporary hilts of more common single handed swords known as “Saxon”, but most certainly made and used over a much wider region. Two similar hand and a half examples are displayed in the Doge’s Palace in Venice. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century these swords were probably not a rare site on European battlefields, carried by mercenaries and professional soldiers in armies fighting almost permanently during a time of shifting religious, political and social change. As fashions changed towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are quite rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords which are of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. The hilt consists of a robust square section quillon block from which the broad arms of the cross guard are forged in flattened diamond section broadening towards the ends and terminating in shallow diamond profiles mounted with knops in the centre. A ring guard is forged from the block, and a smaller secondary ring guard sits beneath this attached to the base of two vertically aligned convex crescents of iron, which extend from the underside of the block either side of the ricasso. This structure is further strengthened on the reverse side by two crossed loops of rounded form which protrude from the block and attach to the base of the guard crescents below. A thumb ring is attached to the block above these loops. The pommel is of solid cone form with a slightly flared and narrow neck beneath. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. The broad blade is double edged with a ricasso extending some 5.5 inches (14 cm) from the hilt. A single broad central fuller extends down the centre of the blade 9.5 inches (24 cm) flanked by two shorter fullers of similar width which extend for the length of the ricasso. Beyond the central fuller the blade is of flattened lenticular section to its tip. Just beyond the end of the central fuller a stamped armourers mark is present both sides consisting of a face in a half moon facing to the left. This type of mark was often used by Solingen and Toledo trained smiths.  This mark particularly resembles the Toledo mark of Espadero del Rey. The blade is most likely of Northern Italian origin manufactured by a Toledo trained smith, working in an area under Spanish control, possibly Milan, from where Spanish blades could easily access the wider European sword making markets. It is also possible that the mark is of a Spanish trained smith that went on to work in one of the non-Spanish blade-making centres such as Solingen and that the sword was made in its entirety there. This sword form was not common in the Spanish armoury. Some European sword makers are known to have trained in Toledo, for example Heinrich Col who was a German from Solingen who worked in Toledo then in Germany (Cf. Seitz I, p. 344, and II, p. 268) indicating that movement of smiths between blade and sword making centres occurred. For more information on this mark see “European Makers of Edged Weapons, Their Marks – A Handbook for Museums and Collectors”, Staffan Kinman, Norrkopings Tryckeri, 2015. Blade length 39 inches (99 cm). Length overall 47.5 inches (120.5 cm).

German / Tyrolean Hand And A Half Sword Circa 1520 With Islamic / Ottoman Inscription. A German or Tyrolean “hand and a half” size fighting sword, of attractive proportions, dating to the first part of the 16th century. A worn Islamic inscription on both sides of the blade indicates that the sword was once captured by the Ottomans as a trophy, most likely in one of the many battles engaged between European and Ottoman forces, as the Empire expanded into the Balkans, Southern Europe and the Mediterranean rim in the late 15th and  16th centuries. Until the early part of the 20th century many similar trophies were stored at the Istanbul Armoury (now the Military Museum, Asker Muzesi, at Harbiye), and relocated to other locations around the city in turbulent times for Turkey at the end of the Ottoman era, often to insecure and inappropriate storage. Some swords like this dispersed to European collections where they were cleaned and displayed. The story of the sword therefore not only represents the European armourer’s craft in the early 16th century, but also in different ways, the rise of the Ottoman Empire, which it was originally used to oppose, and its decline. The broad double-edged blade gradually tapers towards its point. A central  fuller extends from the hilt either side for 10 inches (26 cm) which is flanked by two shorter fullers 7 inches (18 cm) in length. Just after the fullers terminate the inscription is applied slightly to one side on each face and the blade is of flattened lenticular section thereafter for the rest of its length. The middle of the cross is forged as a thick, oval guard bar. The quillons are of rounded section and curve downwards to terminate in large waisted swollen knops. A sloping thumb ring is present on one side and a more imposing guard ring is fixed to the other, strengthened by secondary guard bars which join the sides of the ring with the cross bar. The outer edge of the ring is decorated with knops of similar style to the quillon terminals. The solid pommel is dome shaped on top, decorated with fern-like incised designs, cone shaped below and mounted with an integral button. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century “hand and a half” swords were probably not a rare site on European battlefields. As fashions changed towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are quite rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords which are of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. Blade length 41.25 inches (105 cm). Length overall 49.5 inches (126 cm).

Fine Early 18th century Highland Scottish Dirk. A fine quality and robust 18th century Highland Scottish dirk dating to circa 1715, made with a bog oak grip, brass mounts and a cut down back sword blade. The tapering blade has a single fuller is marked with a running fox on one side probably indicating Shotley Bridge as the place of manufacture. An excellent example of a first quarter 18th century Scottish Highland weapon in fine condition. The grip has a rich, deep reddish coloured patina and is carved with an early form of grip decoration consisting of four columns of reeded interlaced Celtic ropework rather than bands. The underside of the pommel is engraved with a foliate pattern of arches. The brass pommel cap is engraved with two concentric circles inside which a six point floret radiates from the centre, a pattern which often appears on other traditional contemporary Highland Scottish craft items such as powder horns and targes. The threaded tang is secured by a thick square shaped nut with beveled edges above which a small amount of tang protrudes. The dirk has a typical brass crescent shaped ferrule applied to the base of the grip into which the shoulders of the blade sit secured by two brass pins either side, one now missing. Two strips of brass protect the haunches of the grip base, a thinner one on the cutting edge blade side and a wider one on the back edge haunch. The brass parts display a dull aged patination. Provenance: The dirk is published in “The Price Guide to Antique Edged Weapons” by Leslie Southwick, Antique Collectors Club, 1982, page 206, item 603. The overall length is 20.5 inches (52 cm) and the blade 16 inches (40.5 cm).  The blade of this dirk is particularly long compared to contemporary dirks. This may be a reaction to the Disarming Acts introduced to the Scottish Highlands after the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion which forbade the carrying and use of swords by Highlanders in many areas. Although seemingly largely ignored at the time, the Acts not being so fiercely imposed as after the failure of the 1745 Rebellion, in the areas where they were enforced, particularly in the towns and boroughs visited by Highlanders, the creation of a longer dirk may have increased its defensive qualities as a primary  rather than a secondary weapon, where the carrying of a sword was not possible. Shotley Bridge became an important blademaking centre from 1691 on wards after it was founded by a group of immigrant blade smiths from Solingen and continued to produce blades until the 19th century through the Napoleonic War period. It is feasible that due to its location in the north east of England and near the Scottish border, that Shotley Bridge provided blades for some traditional Scottish sword makers.

Highland Scottish Dirk circa 1725. A fine and sturdy 18th century Highland Scottish dirk dating to circa 1725, made with a bog oak grip, brass mounts and a cut down back sword blade. A fine example of this traditional Scottish Highland weapon dating to the period between the 1715 and 1745 Jacobite Rebellions. The grip has a rich, deep, dark patina and is carved with patterns of reeded interlaced Celtic ropework, consisting of two bands at the middle section and knot work panels between the haunches. The underside of the pommel is decorated with a foliate pattern of arches. The brass pommel cap is engraved with two concentric circles between which a delicate pattern of infilled crescents has been engraved. A similar pattern often appears on other traditional contemporary Highland Scottish craft items such as powder horns and targes. The tang is secured by a thick square shaped threaded brass nut with beveled edges above which a small amount of threaded tang protrudes. The dirk has a typical brass crescent shaped ferrule applied to the base of the grip into which the ricasso shoulders of the blade sit secured by brass pins either side. Two strips of brass are mounted to protect the haunches of the grip base, a thinner one fitted onto the cutting edge blade side (now mostly broken away) and a wider one fitted onto the back edge haunch secured by a pin.  The brass parts display a dull aged patination. The blade is fashioned from a cut down back sword blade of Solingen manufacture. A double fuller runs from the hilt underneath the blunt back edge. One fuller on each side is marked “ANDRIA” and the others “FARARA” flanked by incised crosses. The overall length is 17.5 inches (44.5 cm) and the blade is 13 inches (33 cm) long.

Scottish Basket Hilted Sword of “Glasgow” Style circa 1715. This sword is mounted with an elegant and finely contoured basket hilt constructed with flattened structural guard bars of rectangular section decorated in typical “Glasgow” style with shallow flutes flanked by incised lines. The main and secondary guard panels are filed with delicate frets and merlons to the edges, incised with lines and pierced with patterns of circles and triangles. The conical pommel has a pronounced button on top filed with a double groove around its circumference and is decorated with three sets of grooves formed in a similar manner to those on the guard bars which radiate from the button. Between these crescents have been applied in similar manner with the convex sides facing towards the button. The arms of the basket fit into a groove which extends for the full circumference around the pommel just below its middle. The spirally grooved wooden grip is covered with shagreen and bound with finely twisted copper wire with “Turks Heads” applied top and bottom. The single edged tapering blade has a pronounced ricasso extending for just over an inch from the hilt. A groove is incised near the front blunt edge on each side. Underneath the back edge a pronounced fuller extends from the hilt to terminate 8 inches (20 cm) from the tip after which the blade is double-edged. A second fuller commences 8 inches (20 cm) from the hilt and runs under the first to terminate nearer to the blade tip. Between the ricasso and the commencement of the second fuller a panel of scrolling foliage has been applied each side with the name “Andrea Farara” applied underneath. The blade length is just under 34.5 inches (87.5 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 39.5 inches (just over 100 cm). The Glasgow style of hilt decoration is distinctive and fully represents the highest quality output of the Glasgow armourers in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Whilst the style of hilt was produced by a number of armourers, those that signed their work exhibited some elements of style unique to themselves. This sword hilt, although not marked with a maker’s initials, is almost identical in form to one produced by Thomas Gemmill, housed in the National Museums of Scotland and illustrated in “Scottish Swords and Dirks” by John Wallace, Arms and Armour Press, 1970, fig 30 and in “British Basket Hilted Swords” by Cyril Mazansky, Boydell Press, 2005, page 119, figs F16d(TG). The similarity lies in the pronounced slope to the cross bar which rises upwards from the front to the wristguard. Both hilts are asymmetrical from the front allowing more space for the fingers of the right hand to grip the hilt. The width of bars is similar as is the attractive overall hilt profile. Each sword is mounted with a single-edged blade of similar width and length. Each sword is also a horsemans’ sword with an oval ring inset into the hilt. These marked similarities indicate that the hilt was probably made by Thomas Gemmill. Thomas Gemmill started work just after 1700 and was appointed King’s Armourer in Glasgow on 18th January 1718. Another similar hilt signed by Gemmill is illustrated on page 117 of Mazansky.

Superb example of the British No.9 Mk I bayonet, scabbard and frog, all of which are in near mint condition, and possibly unissued. The No.9 Mk I bayonet which is 10 inches in overall length, was approved on 22nd June 1948, and this example, which was made at the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) in Poole, Dorset, UK., is dated 1948. Production of the No.9 bayonet at ROF Poole continued until 1949, when production of the No.9 bayonet was moved to Enfield. The No.9 bayonet was made for use with the No.4 rifle and the Mk V Sten Gun (SMG). This No.9 Mk I’s blade looks to be factory fresh in mint original condition, with 100% of its original highly polished factory finish. It is a deep fullered 7.8 inch ‘ Bowie ‘ blade with blackened ricassos. The blade is fitted to a blackened steel socket, which is fitted with a spring loaded catch for fitting the socket onto the rifle or Sten Gun muzzle, which is then depressed to release from the muzzle. The underside of the socket is stamped with a ‘ P ‘ within a circle being the production mark for ROF Poole, it is also year date stamped ‘ 1948 ‘. The side of the socket also has the Inspector’s stamped mark ‘ F5B ‘. The No.9 Mk I’s sheet steel 8.6 inch scabbard with a matt black finish, is the same as that used for both the No.5 and No.7 bayonets. The Bayonet comes with an original green webbing Pattern 1944 Frog, the front of which has been service blackened. The bayonet, scabbard and frog are in superb all original condition, which would be extremely difficult to upgrade.Please Note : Shipping charges for this item will be based on the buyer’s location, and the final weight and size of the packaging, which will typically be shipped via either FedEx or USPS with tracking, insurance and a signature required upon delivery, with the buyer being charged for shipping at the actual cost.

P. S. Justice delivered 2,469 Cal.58 2 band short rifles to Frankfort Arsenal in Philadelphia in 1861.  The majority were issued to flank companied of Pennsylvania 3 month Volunteer Infantry regiments in 1861.  The quality of these rifles and their bayonets, as well as the 2,174 Cal.69 Rifled Muskets with socket bayonets he delivered  was universally complained about.  Many were left on 1861 battlefields.   Originally O.A.L. 26 3/8", reduced to 20 3/4".  Original blade length of 21 3/4, reduced to 16".  At the hilt, the blade is 1.078" wide and 0.353" thick.   One piece brass grip is 4 5/8" long with 17 lines cast in.  Locking lug moves against the 1.7" long flat spring, which is weak / very slightly bent outward.  Bore of the barrel hold is 0.80" at front and 0.807" at rear.  Stamped on the left side of the muzzle ring is "P" (off center struck to the left side) over deep stamped serial number "1411".    Stamped in very small font is P.S. JUSTICE" in a slight arch over  "PHILADa" in a straight line.  The blade has a coating of rust and scattered scales of rusting and pitting.   I speculate the damaged bayonet was heavily grind wheel down to create a sharpened point so that the bayonet could be re-used with a captured Rifle.  From the battering on the rear face it appears that the blade might have been remounted on the handle.  There appears to be no modification to the bayonet lug slot trying to fit it to a different rifle.  These  bayonets were hand fitted to their rifle and the SN were applied to both bayonet and weapon.  A rare early Civil War Bayonet reprocessed for continued use and later stored in a bit to damp of a place for many years. Ebay URL:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Bayonet-Early-Civil-War-Rifle-P-S-JUSTICE-PHILADa-P-1411/124238501215?hash=item1ced31155f:g:QGkAAOSwielejjvx
