this sword is published by Ewart Oakeshott in records of the medieval sword and in Sword in hand.
XIIIa-12 page 105.

however the blade length mentioned is not correct it is 10cm larger, it is a true two hand sword (TTL length is 124cm.)

there are 2 marks filled with latten ,two on both sides, can somebody provide some more info about these marks?

Hi Cornelis, just wondering, but how do you know that Mr. Oakeshott was incorrect about the lenght.

OK, so the sword is actually 124 cm long, do you know how long the blade is?

Wow, I didn't see this coming!

Congratulations, amazing thing too have in collection.

Anyway, I noticed that in most publications, this sword is photographed with bare tang.

On your pictures it seems to have some kind grip furniture. Is this some authentic, or even original one, or replacement?

Sorry that I cannot help about marks on the blade, anyway.

Wow, I cant say I seen that one coming either. Of all the replies I've ever gotten on this forum, I think this has to be the most shocking. Well after taking some beep breaths and remembering that there was a question along with that shock, all I can say is that if you've read Records Of The Medieval Sword, then you know as much as I do about these markings, sorry I could be of any help and congrats on aquiring a very fine sword.
