Swiss/German Baselard - Green Scabbard - SOLD


Baselards were very popular throughout Europe from Italy through to Scotland and everywhere in-between, but strangely, they had two very different forms.

The grip is laburnum, the top guard is finished with decorative bronze rivets and the sheath is double layer veg tan leather with simple carved decoration and a bronze chape.


Blade length - 302mm/11 7/8"

Total length - 42.8cm/ 17.25"
