Checking the page again it says Münich ("Bayerisches Armeemuseum i München."). Where I got Dresden from, well, maybe best to not even ask.

It reminds me of this one, a Nordic peasant's vouge/couse/kuse according to the auction house.

Apart from the perhaps slight thinner back spike the Scandinavian one really does look spot on for the Swedish navy's boarding axe m/1780. Did the Danes really have a model that matches even better?

To the best of my knowledge the idea is that you'd hold the dagger with the ring on the outside, ie the opposite side from your thumb. Much like a side ring on a sword, it should be primarily there...

In case it helps, I see infantry officer's swords with "smallsword style" hilts and spadroon blades every now and then here in Sweden. The hilt here doesn't really look like the Swedish fashion...

Those are the territories of the Prince-electors of the Holy Roman Empire. "Fur" simply means "for" I think, and "Kaiserlich" would probably refer to something of the Emperor's or imperial. Perhaps...

Unusual looking backstrap IMO, that might be a trail to follow.



Sweden can probably be ruled out, there's nothing terribly similar in Berg's books or on display over at the army Museum in...

Looks like a Swedish cavalry sabre m/1847 with the outside of the guard bent a bit out of shape. I'm attaching a few pics of mine for comparison.

The somewhat peculiar blade shape returns on a few...

This is actually shown in a Swedish documentary series (Svenska Slag) about the Scanian War (1675-79). So it might be a reasonably old practice.

When talking about things related to Vikings and the Swedish iron age a bearded axe would look rather like this one. I don't know what the longobards used, but it seems plausible to me that their...

IIRC some Japanese swords and daggers (mostly the latter) have such hilt ornaments that take the place of (or integrate with?) the menuki plug. I would guess that they have one piece for each side...

Mixed auction lot

At a recent auction the seme here caught my eye (well, that's what I think it is), and since the whole lot (all four items) went for nothing much at all, I thought it would be worth the gamble. 54cm...

The swords with knuckle bows might be hudiedao, possibly butterfly sword in English (I'm not sure what the exact definitions of those terms are, nor of they are exactly the same for the two words)....
