Dimensions of the sword
OAL is 33 1/2 inches
Blade length is 19 inches
Blade thickness is 5/16th inch with distal taper to 1/8th inch
Blade width is 1 1/2 inch at base and 2 5/8 inch at the widest point of the bulge along the backside.
The edge is sharp along the straight edge on through the curve up to the tip.
The blade cross section is full flat with a flat grind (on both sides).
This is a very solid and relatively heavy weapon. I've no doubt it would find good use chopping in the fields or in battle.
I will post some close up pictures soon.
