Broadsword. Although there is nothing specifically maritime about this sword, it is undeniably a fighting weapon. Its length suggests that it is more appropriate to a mounted soldier than anyone else, but it could also be of the type used at sea. It is perhaps the case that the short, handy hanger, used instead of the rapier, or that sword's derivatives was not the only type of fighting sword used at sea. There is a possibility that the hilt of this sword is a development of the 'Walloon' hilt of the Thirty Years' War period lacking the pierced shells.
