Default A couple more ...

that I picked up together a few months ago. These are smaller than the other two examples and, although the edges are sharp, they appear to be more decorative than functional. Blades are less than 1/8 inch thick at the hilt. Same type of construction and similar scabbards. Again, these came from Britain.

I have not got around to cleaning these yet. The top one has a coat of heavy grease or oil. The bottom one has been coated with varnish.

n2s: You could well be correct that these are all the work of a single person or perhaps a small family group.
