I got this blade from Albion during the rusty sword parts sale. Not sure why I got it, but here it is. So the question is, what do I do with it? Any suggestions? Its 28" long, 1.75" wide at the base, and tapers slightly to 1.62" before coming to a point. 8" tang.

Looks to me it was intended for a spatha so you can probably get away with making a spatha - roman or germanic, perharps celtic sword?

you could also use it for a 15th/16th century type XVIII riding sword.
