    Hi Gogas, welcome to the forum................!

    It looks like a decorator.
    Are there any markings anywhere, perhaps on the spine ?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Nop no marks Steve, just a plane blade with a bit o rust. Just found it cool, it took me 30 Euros to buy the thing, I wasn't really counting on making a good discovery, I just liked it, and since I had never seen nothing like it, I had to ask.
    Thanks Steve
    Best regards

    Guess that was not too much $$ to pay, as long as YOU like it,
    but I do not think it is a true military sword. There is not
    enough quality in the way the hand guard is made.
    It is too thin and the 'etching' is weak, IMO.

    There are a lot of Spanish and India made pieces out there,
    and this may be one of them..............
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I agree with walkwolf. I have bought many spanish and indian swords before. Although they were of nicer quality than yours, they were "tourist" items. For 30 euros it is a good wall hanger.

    All of this looks a little too flimsy and if there weren't any markings on it at all, i highly doubt that this is a military sword of any sort.
