I did not mean that this pistol was connected with the EIC. My comparison was with the owner saving money by not having his pistol proofed, as some EIC officers did.

Yes, an interesting pistol. I don't know anything about Cassaignard but the style certainly looks French. I believe that officers in the East India Company's troops often saved the cost of proofing...

That is a very nice cased pair of pistols, in apparently superb condition by an excellent maker(from Regensburg). The single stock is correct and the lack of any visible empty slots suggests that the...

That is a brilliant video, especially being based on original guard positions from Fiore dei Liberi (?). So much more believable than the usual film fight scene.
Many thanks for posting.

It certainly has the form of a sport epee, possibly early 20th century, except for the sharp point! So perhaps it was intended for the duel, not to the death but to first blood. Sport epees at this...

My pleasure, Fernando. There are 2 main theories as to how the open ring, on the inside of the hilt for a right-handed swordsman, worked. 1: the reins could be pushed through the ring and gripped by...

Hi Fernando, yes your basket-hilt is in the same style as Mark's and I would judge of a very similar date. His, however is a half basket while yours is a full basket with a ring for managing reins...

i would say your guess is pretty close - Scottish mid-late 18th century and middle quality. I assume that there are no marks on blade or hilt to help identify it. But a nice sword to own.

I agree with Victrix and would suggest that the motto is abbreviated for:

Thanks, Reventlov.
I forgot to say that I have seen a blade mark very similar to that on G.P.D.'s sword on 2-hander blades made in S.Germany, probably Passau. My basic feeling is that Grutte Pier's...

I don't think we should dismiss Grutte Pier's sword as a late replica without positive evidence - which would need detailed examination in the 'flesh'.
There exist several very large Bearing or...
