Hi everyone,
While visiting the Morges Castle (in Switzerland) a while back, I saw a sword that really caught my eye. It is a two-handed sword with a wavy blade, but has a shell guard in addition to the quillons. I leave the pictures I took below (sorry for the poor quality, I was in a hurry and only had my phone). So have anyone seen something like that, be it an original or a reproduction?
PS: The label says ''Two-handed sword, Switzerland, 1566''

Nice. I like it, I hope it's original. I like the cloth grip.
