Physical Description

The gradually tapering leaf-shaped blade is slightly hollow ground, with a slight medial ridge. The blade is attached to the haft by a short socket and langets of equal length. The langets are secured by three hoops that have raised, flat-topped tubes for the attachment of the pennon. One of the langets is bent. The two halves of the tubes are joined by screws around the langets.
The haft is parallel sided and quite thin. The shoe is missing.
