I am not sure if this Darkwood replica is strictly speaking a Walloon. Nice blunt sword still.

Gentlemen:

I ran across the website below while over at the Vikingsword.com site.

I don't know how close these would fall to the Walloon classification, but it seems that they would be, at the very least, kissin' cousins. Schwedendegen!

Just to finish this thread off, here are a couple of photos of the custom Walloon that A&A made for me. I know, old news.

One more example to add to the collection: This European horseman's saber has a Walloon-type hilt with a 38" (96.8 cm) single edged blade. The entire length of the sword is 43 1/2" (110.5 cm). Engraving on each side includes a star, moon, sun, and arm in the clouds with sword. c.1650-1690.

The hatchet-point Walloon sword is quite rare in my opinion.

Hi, this is my first post and I have to apologize for opening a dormant thread...

For a long time I have been trying to make my mind about a sword that could be from 1620-1640 and has both Walloon and I will say Swedish traits (the S quillons). Because of the typical blade I decided finally to register and ask for the forum opinion in a Walloon thread. The pommel is very nice and fit well but is not typical. I have never seen anything like the total. Of course it could be a Victorian mongrel.

Measurements are something like 117cm total length, 93cm blade and 1495gr total weight. There is a thumb ring. The handle shows signs of being covered in acute angles designs of wire. Later was also covered by glued leather (remains). The front edge seems to have been sharpened more often than the back.

As you can see from the pictures, the thing seems to have been constructed to be used with gauntles. It handles very nicely with them on.
