I've been doing a video a day this week, covering antique smallswords. Today, I looked at what is undoubtedly the rarest sword I own.

This sword has a unique blade, of which there is only one other extant example known. That sword was owned by General George Washington.

The blade is extremely broad, and still sharp despite being made ~1730. The design is extremely specialised, making a stiff, light blade with the ability to perform push and draw cuts.



This is Washingtons' sword from 1753. It features a very similar blade, which is very slightly more tapered.

I'm looking forward to it. I don't like smallswords (as well as spadroons), so I suspect I simply don't know enough of them. I'd be happy to learn.
