dear sirs,
This site has sent me the virus of the historicity of a sword.
Now I agree with the choice of owning a weapon as historically accurate as possible.
The Oakeshott Institute that you know provide photos and measurements of swords that has in its database? I made three requests Museums Italians but I answered a polite no.
Regards

The Oakeshott Institute hasn't developed their database yet. I suspect that it won't be happening for quite a number of years.

The Wallace Collection has many of its swords online, with photos and statistics. They take their educational role very seriously, I think.

thanks very much for the information, Sean
the data are few but at least have a basis.
The section is one that creates more problems, continually changing, and a photo is difficult to reproduce the same.
I'm waiting for a book: Armi Bianche Italiane, but I do not know if they are also the measures.

The book Europaische Hieb Und Stich Waffen (European Thrusting and Slashing Weapons) has measurement for most of the items in it. It's a great book and can be found for cheaper than Amazon's price.

As I said in my last post, you can find it cheaper than Amazon's $350. Antikmakler usually deals in used books, and the copies you linked to appear to be used. Antikmakler has been good to deal with in the past. If you're satisfied with the book's condition, I'd buy it. I think any price under $70 USD is a great deal for this book.
