Gilded Pappenheimer Rapier
- Dated: 1630
The elegant symmetrical hilt is fashioned of forged rectangular-section iron bars showing lamination and featuring horizontally recurved quillons with small button finials.
Emanating from the quillons are a series of interconnected looping bars, enclosing an integral round plate on each side pierced with holes framed by an incised double diamond. The sword has a faceted pear-shaped pommel with button.
The grip features two sizes of twisted iron wire and turk’s heads top and bottom. Diamond-section 38” Spanish blade deeply stamped with a different mark on each side of the ricasso.

- Dated: 19th century
- Place of Origin: Nepal
- Overall length: 15.5in (395mm); blade length: 12.5in (315mm)
The knife has flared wooden grips, fitted with nicely chased steel fittings. The blade has a very thick spine, and the tang runs through the grips, very much like an Indian kard dagger.
A very unusual cho notch at the base of the blade, with chiselled decoration running along the spine on both sides of the blade. The cloth pouch was probably used to carry tinder or maybe a prayer book/charm.
