Wow! Those really are beautiful examples Gav!
I have always liked those pipeback blades, very impressive.
It seems that Dutch weapons are relatively seldom seen in the collecting community, so it would be interesting to know more about these.
What are the inscriptions on the blade? makers ?

Thanks very much Henk for the Wilkinson book references. Those are some good photos and you're right, the one you referred to has great similarity. I didn't realize that book was published in Dutch. Do you have reference to these Dutch naval swords?

All the best,
Jim
