Greetings!

I am working on a project for publication and am trying to track down information on the following weapon, which I have a photo of in my files, but I lost the collection information as well as information on whom to contact for a high res photo. Any help is appreciated!

Best wishes,

Greg

There's a thread around here somewhere about these swords. But I can't find it at the moment. I'll look more later if no one else can find it.

Thanks Chad! Looks like these are variations of the same, and the trail leads to Vienna.

There are drawings of one of these in Fiore Flower of battle.

Matt,

Yes, I know - that is what started the search. Wink

Tom and Scott saw one in Italy a few years ago so he (Scott, Darkwood) started making a WMA version.

Greg,

I have three tight shots of the example that was in the "L' Epee" exhibit at the Musee de Cluny in 2011. It is the Vienna sword, pictured on pg 51of the French edition of the show catalogue. Scott Baltic should have a copy if you don't.
