This short sword is a German-made utility weapon sometimes referred to as a M1810 side arm. Steel blade, marked "P.D.L." within an oval, measures 18¾" long, has a 1¼" width and a thick flat back. Equipped with plain, all brass, one-piece grip and pommel with teardrop guard, blade is straight and has a spear point tip. No fullers. Both blade flats are void of any decoration. Blade retains no original colors and does exhibit areas of dark, mottled patina with light pitting overall. A fine strong specimen of early nineteenth century edged weaponry and a great collectible.
