Just picked this up. Does anyone recognize what it is? I can usually tell most makers, but this one doesn't have a mark on it. Similar to a couple makers, but nothing I can put a certain finger on. Fit and finish is nice. Everything is super tight. Blade is hand made with good temper and sharpness. Sword handles extremely well. I am comfortable one handing this despite the fact it is 50 and 1/4 " long. It also has the longest forte I've seen on a sword like this at 11". Triple fullered. with peaned blade. Nice sword, I just have no idea.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Looks very similar to this but not the exact length and grip.

The scabbard suspension makes me think Christian Fletcher. If he made the scabbard, that might narrow your search.
