Hello Ivan,

a nice and interesting sword. I am surprised that swords were still produced in this form in young time. I them would have arranged at least 100 years earlier.

best regards,
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

Thank you veru much for the comment. Yes, Spanish cavalry swords look very unusual compared to other European countries, which did not used rapiers from the end of 17th century.
That's why I like them. I have cavalry pallasches from different European countries, and the Spanish swords one of my favorite.

Best regards,
Ivan
