So these blades would have made useless weapons, then. That puts to rest one point brought up by the book. Actually the novel revolved around the adventures of the executioner employed at Boleyn's request...the story gets really weird, but the man repeatedly uses the sword in combat. That is now indicated as being impossible or at least foolish.
It's the shape of these things more than anything, that intrigues me. I'm curious to see how the real thing compares to my imagination.
All the best,
