Great shape to the blade of this example, especially the broad leaf shape deisgn. Take a moment to click on the images and you'll see you can produce detailed enlargements. An additional element of note there is a small hole on the collar were a nail would have been inserted to help support the blade of the piece on aforementioned wooden staff, and of course the great S Shaped guard on the piece. The S shape guard having been designed to entangle and break sword blades.

There is some pitting to the piece, slight oxidation, wear to the tip of the blade with some rounding, all typical of the signs you would expect to see on a piece of this age; the piece is in solid overall shape.
