Italian Cutlass Sword

  • Personal note: The source says it’s a cutlass, but this looks more like a falchion
  • Dated: 1590

An important Italian cutlass, engraved each side of the blade, full length, with the last 2 lines of the "Te Deum" religious Hymn: "In te, Domine, speravi, non confundar in aeternum," meaning "O Lord, in thee have I trusted, let me never be confounded." Re-curved quillions, down turned guards, spiral turned wood grip with the ricasso stamped with Toledo bladesmith’s stamp. Short stout blade with clipped point. 26” overall.
