Looking for photos of a type XVIII longsword in the Schweizerisches Landesmuseum Zurich, Switzerland. One of the best looking hilt-pommel combinations ever made i reckon. Does anyone know if it is in their exibition?

Well, I am not sure whether this sword is still exhibited at that museum or not.

When I was there 4 years ago, it wasn't on display.

The Landesmuseum in Zürich has an incredible collection of arms and armour. A few years back much of this collection was taken down and put into storage (Quite a few pieces still remain, but it is only a small part of what is really there). This sword is one of those that are no longer on display, as I learned to my dismay during my visit a few years back.
This policy is very sad for the regular visitor with an interest in arms and armour who makes the journey to the museum, but possibly a boon for someone who plans a focused study trip with some hands on time with pen and paper...

It might prove rewarding to contact the museum and ask for the possibility of access.

Thanks for the tip Peter.
