Allen Antiques

1580

Heavy blade (almost 1/4in. thick at the back) with bolster and thick tang. Wooden Handle scales - very thick (actually thicker than its width) attached with 4 hollow iron rivets (one missing). Some cleaning to the handle affecting its shape. Some resin fill between scales and tang, but minimal to replace losses/shrinkage. corrosion on blade is minimal (some pitting, edge losses and flaking, but mostly insignificant) 15.5 inches long, 365 grams. Simon Moore has only seen 3 of these on the market.
