Cuttoe sword by Iron John Logan

Syzygy is made in the late 18th century "Neo Classical" architecture popular with the Enlightenment showing influence of both Greek and Roman within the European Baroque style. The hand carved bronze hilt has extensive sculpting and engraved details of scrolls and bursting rays on top a field of natural forms. The crenelated bronze ferrel supports the natural ringed horn of the worldly Impala along with ebony and a grotesque of the sun and moon sharing a smile as the pommel. The saw back blade has a deep narrow fuller and is etched with Triumph of Arms, the moon on one face, and the sun on the other and is deeply touchmarked by the artist. Edge and saw sharp and functional 

24 inches overall, 18-1/2 inch blade 18oz

Isa 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.Lu 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
