Hello there!

Does anyone have any info on original smallswords? I'm looking for at least lenght, blade lenght and weight - weight being the real problem, as most sources i found don't cite it.... PoB would also be much appreciated.

I'll be very grateful if anyone has any info on them!

Thank you, however i think i hit jackpot:

http://swordlinks.com/courtswords/p9.html

After a few futile hours of searching, i thought that maybe "court sword" or "dress sword" would be more productive. I was right. Happy

There are HUGE differences in weight. The lightest (still usable) i've found so far is only 224,5 grams, while the heaviest is 811 grams. That's almost four times as much! Damn!

Thank you for the info, though, i'll be sure to check it out if i can get my hands on it. Happy
