Hi,

I'm looking for examples of late medieval/early renaissance period lenticular bladed longswords, with fuller or without. I have only come across a few so far, it seems hexagonal (XIX) and diamond (XVIII) cross sections were more common.

A few examples:

Not sure on this one:

I have only found one example of what essentially is a two-handed XIV (probably an odd duck) but what I'd like to find would basically be a lenticular type XIX. Long ricasso, one or multiple fullers, just lenticular instead of hexagonal.

I'd really appreciate all input!

MRL sells a sword called the German Bastard Sword. It's inexpensive and of decent quality, as are just about everything made by Windlass. They make rather big deal of it's "flattened oval" (lenticular) cross-section.
