Mr Stilleborn
Thanks for the link. Some lovely stuff in there, but I think the galleries/list may be incomplete. Either that or I'm looking in the wrong place. I recall some shorter edged weapons that don't seem to be there, and I thought there were more sabres. It is a grand museum to visit and I loved the S-tank in the front yard!
thanks again

Excellent link!
I will give it a look at my next visit to Stockholm.

If you ever make it to Graz in Austria, don't miss to see the "Landeszeughaus". It is a four story original store (Waffenkammer) containing hundreds of original armour, staff weapons, swords, sabres and pistols. A small army can be equipped right away!

See here:

hi there,

thanks for posting this excellent link,

i personally find such slender 17th century swords to be some of the coolest ever produced.

the link is also great in that it shows that though most of the swords are of similar lengths and widths etc, there exists within these parameters a fairly wide variety of blade and hilt forms which were being built (experimented with?) at that time.

cheers, adam s

I am looking for a current link for the swords at the Swedish Army Museum. While I can navigate through several sections, the chronological pages of swords seems to be gone. The subsections don't seem to break down the way the pages used to, with the firearms and swords in their own sections.

Color me befuddled. Vapen less frustrated,

Cheers

The funny thing is the museum's website doesn't have links to weapons including swords.
What a waste! Mad

Their website has been updated since the original post. Now you can browse http://digitaltmuseum.se/info/owners/S-AM for pictures of the museums inventory. If you need help translating search terms, just ask. But to get you started:
Svärd = sword
Sabel = sabre
Faskinkniv = fascine knife
Huggare = cutlass
Värja = small sword
Have fun!

Thank you very much. The search with terms will work for me very well. I am still not seeing quick links to the sword szection, as the vapen folder directs to vehicles, where it used to break down the national blades more easily.. I may still be just overlooking something.

Ah, found the blankwaffen

Cheers
