Yeah, I would probably go with felddegen or haudegen.

On a side note, the blade on the bottom one does look almost exactly like the blade on the Walloon sword I got recently (except for the...

Are you sure you don't mean the kling (blade)? I've heard "over de kling jagen" but never "over de klewang".

I bought a Walloon sword of this type recently (with a bit of help from ulfberth who helped confirm its authenticity), right after I saw the one at the Lakenhal museum here in Leiden. A bit more...

You're not wrong, and that's just plain weird looking. Or maybe it's just some style I'm unfamiliar with. I hope it's unsharpened down there or you'd cut your finger off! Maybe a blade attached to a...

Actually this one was Sebastian Hernan(d)ez (although probably not really, of course, just the name on the blade). See the other side attached here for completeness' sake.

And yeah, it was a very...

Both very nice examples! And an interesting date, being before the 1728 date when they became a standardized model. I was given to understand that the earlier Bilbo models used two screws instead of...

Could the curved sword be a Collins & Co. Legitimus machete maybe? Although it looks somewhat unusually curved.

I see my post was edited... I don't mind as it wasn't important anyway. But I'm not sure I understand why? I linked to an auction that was closed.

You see them from time to time. I posted another one here (http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showthread.php?t=27874) a while ago. On mine, the T-section runs up to the bolster.

Both Hernandez and Fernandez end in a 'z', which might explain their use of the 3 (if it was in fact a stylized 'z').

To be honest I just kind of assumed the 3 in the list of makers marks must be a stylized Z because there is a Z in Hernandez and a 3 is a bit meaningless. But I agree it's probably not his mark, as I...
