17th Century Spanish blade, "Sebastiano Ernandez", Toledo, mounted on an 18th century English Smallsword hilt

Status: Sold

A very nice "Sebastiano Ernandez" 17th century blade mounted on an English Smallsword hilt.

The name could refer to either the original Sebastiano Ernandez or to his son by the same name, both high-end Toledo craftsmen. 

Their signatures were often forged by Solingen makers of the same period. However, blades with forged Sebastiano Ernandez signatures were generally made by weaker Solingen makers, and the high quality of this blade indicates that this is an original Toledo. Several different phonetic versions have been found on the hundreds of blades produced by them, including "Sebastian/Sebastiano Ernandez/Hernandez".

This blade was most likely found or imported by an Englishman and mounted on an English Smallsword Hilt of the same period.

There is slight movement in the guard, but the blade is solidly attached to the hilt.
