Hello!

Does anyone have dimensions and stats on the two handed sword at the Met thats reportedly from the Castillon finds? I've had some trouble finding weight, blade length/width, or even much in the way of pictures (unfortunately I forgot to take any when I was there recently).

It's similar to the other Castillon two handers.

Hi Max,
My understanding is that this particular sword was auctioned by Hermann Historica a few years ago, and at that time they described it as follows: "Total length 145.5 cm, blade length 110 cm. Greatest width of blade 5.5 cm. Length of the tang 25 cm." Additionally, the Met gives the weight as 5 lb 3 oz, or about 2.3 kg.

I took these pictures when I visited last year.
