Broadsword. It is apparently German, bearing the 'running wolf' mark of Solingen and Passau, and there are grounds for thinking this to be a fighting sword of the middle of the century done in the style of the more normal gentlemen's sword. It does not seem to have been an effective thrusting sword though it may have served as a cutting weapon more commonly found in the services. Its general appearance suggests more robustness than is normally associated with the small-sword.
