I have found this sword browsing a russian language forum. It is very strange as it appears to have no fuller whatsoever on the blade. I would like to know if somebody has some more info and additional pics of this particular blade.

It is very beautifully looking to me, I like the cross and disc pommel combination a lot.

The picture belongs to the forum indicated by the watermark.

Hi Bruno as far as I can remember this sword is actually single edged and that why it has no fuller.

Yes this is a very interesting sword, if you do a search on this forum, for 14th century single edged sword (I think) you will find a thread which discusses this piece.

Bruno

The catalogue number is IX.985.

It used to be listed on the collection page of the Royal Armouries website with the following brief description: "Sword English, 1300-1350". See attached pic.

The following links have some more info:
