I am looking for type XIII swords, either newly made or re-hilted between 1425 and 1575. Those I know of are XIIIa.7 here: http://www.myArmoury.com/feature_spotxiii.html and the first two here: http://www.myArmoury.com/feature_higgins.html and my very favorite two: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t...=twohanded
Does anyone know of any other examples. They do not really need to be classic XIII's, anything XIII-like would be cool. I know that Peter Johnsson once mentioned an example in Skokloster armory in Sweden that was part of the inspiration for the New Generation Duke. I would especially like to see a pic of that one.

Wallace collection has good amount of longswords with blades that to me really seem like obvious XIIIa. Can be wrong.

This sword from Swiss museum as well:

It's very, very roughly dated, at least by articles author, though, it seems. Big Grin

Thank you Bartek, that is just the sort of sword I am looking for. Ever since I first read "Archaeology of Weapons" I have wanted an older style XIII blade mounted in a late 15th/early 16th century hilt.

This XIII (middle in picture) at the Royal Ontario Museum is thought to be an older blade re-hilted: http://i488.photobucket.com/albums/rr244/Refl...010256.jpg

There are more pictures of it somewhere here on myArmoury if you search.
