For all of you Mortuary hilt fans out there, check out Harvey Wither's site, www.britishmilitaryswords.co.uk. He is offering a 1640-era mortunary sword with the original scabbard. The blade is heavily etched and engraved. The outward face of the semi-basket is heavily chisteled. Harvey has provided a number of nice close-up shots. This is - at least in my experience - a chance to see a very nice sword paired with the scabbard. Enjoy and Happy Holidays to all!

Thanks for the link....will surely go have a look.

oh wow.....that is very interesting indeed. It's the first I've ever seen, in my mortuary research over the years, with an original scabbard.


cheers,

another interesting feature about this particular mortuary is the leather basket liner. There are only a couple shown in Mazansky's book and I've never seen one with a liner personally. The pics of this will surely find their way into my mortuary hilt photo data base collection.

cheers,

Bill
