Thank you for the pictures Matchlock!



Would you happen to have more info on that picture?

The schiavonesca style sabre and the hand-n-a half sword seems more Hungarian than German to me (the cross-guard is of the Veneto-Balkan origin used also used in the Kingdom of Hungary, but what sets it apart is the squarish shield-like pommel whereas in the Balkans and Venice the "cats head"/katzenkoppf style was in use) but as always feel free to correct me in case I'm wrong

Regards,
Samuel
