I was wondering if you could help me with this sabre – I want to forge it (about 1500 - see pic. - ... 6MDt9&pg=4 ). Does anybody know the measurements? Length, width and thickness of the blade, length of the arms, overall length..
I cannot find it in any book or on internet.
Thanks for your help!

If it is in the armouries, just ask them.

They are very helpful (although not always very fast) answering queries. When Fox (a poster on this forum) wanted information on a musketoon in the collection they not only got it out for photographing, they even X-rayed it for him.

There are contacts for the curators on their website.
