This sword was superb, when it arrived in the New York harbor on a ship from England, ca.1810. English-made, retailed by the New York cutlers Christopher & John David Wolfe, it bears a 32" blade with a very long false edge, a scarcely-seen shape, sometimes encountered on the British cavalry officers 1796 blades of the Waterloo vintage. Despite obvious losses, the blade retains much of its etched decorations, which are quite wonderful. This sword suffers from the improper storage over the years, in an obvious way, and needs some gentle tlc. I just cleaned off the cobwebs and oiled the blade and the scabbard. This old veteran, bruised and scarred, is fresh from a New England attic.
