Default Unknown short sword, old Moorish sword?


around two years ago I won this heavily corroded short sword.

It's exactly like the old boys liked it, thin, wide and heavy. Without the Tang it is ~55 cm long.

The cutting edge looks gruesome, this sword saw truly brutal action.

I'm sure this blade was part of a European collection, because the latin number "1748" is stamped on the blade.

Any ideas what it is? Is it a moorish blade from spain or a naval sword?

I hope, someone know what I have. At least it seems to be pretty rare, because I cannot find another example.

Best wishes,
