Hi,

does anyone have any idea what this might be? It has a blunt blade. I am not sure if it broke or was made this way. It looks more like it was made this way to me. It does not have a scabbard. I took the pommel & handle off & the markings on the tang I wrote them down on a piece of paper which I took a pic of. I am thinking it is some kind of masonic piece. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Del

I would agree a little later than 1816 an 1830+ model I would say but not of the second empire time many varations exists and fakes abound.

They where made blunt like that as they where designed more to cut underbrush and small trees rather than enemy soilders. Basically it is the 19th century version of the machete.

There are a number of similar blades found in the threads here they come up allthe time and are quite common despite this most on-line sellers will apply the 'Rare', 'Scarce' in the description.

Fakes usually come with pristine blades and scabbards. This one has a lovely patnia which makes it clear on its age.
