Here you go Jim,
I'll send you a pdf version shortly. The Venetian storta immediately came to mind when I saw the sword. The one below is a 15th century Venetian example (p.48 Swords and Hilt Weapons, Weidenfeld and Nicholson, London 1989).
A very interesting article, I'll be sure to mine the magazine for other such gems.
All the best,
