    Looks to be a good Funcke & Bruninghaus, note the elongated blood gutter and the perculiar additional split in the scrollwork around the central motif. Also the die flaw close to the maker mark gives this a cautious from me.

    I say cautious because of the lack of pebbling to the areas between the oak leaves on the central motif. Perhaps this is a sign of a worn die?

    Is 'blood gutter' an official term Glenn ? Not come across it before

    No, no an official term but one that is often used to describe that particular section of the blade (along with blood groove or blood channel). In fact the channel/groove/gutter has nothing to do with blood at all, it is simply a means to lessen the weight of the weapon whilst maintaining strength. Urban myth would have it that the blood gutter was to allow swifter drainage of blood after a right royal stabbing or to reduce the suction a victim's wound might have when withdrawing the weapon, both erroneous ideas.

    Plus in Durante's book on the CCC he refers to blood gutters so who am I to argue?
