Default Flyssa sword

good day everybody

my pleasure to introduce you my last input
since long I was expected to acquire a long "Flyssa", ... with scabbard

I found one, in excellent state, just some tarnish, but nothing very important
easy with some "elbow oil" to correct it

rare to found an edged weapons nicely maintained, this one was even oily
please share

Thanks every one, for the compliments

Atlantia, I'm confused to have forgotten the measurements
- overall with scabbard; 97 cm either 38"
- overall without scabbard; 89,50 cm either 35"
- blade only; 77,50 cm either 30"
- handle; 12 cm either 4"
- head dog; 4 cm either 1"
- handle thickness; 2 cm either 0,79"
- date; not later than first half of 20th century

all the best

It is getting harder and harder to find big examples of these. Congratulations!

Lovely flyssa Dom, congrats! Good that the scabbard still has all of its bands.

I'd say first half of 19th century though
