    My dad gave me this sword that he got from his step father and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. It measures roughly 33 inches from tip to the base of the handle and there is the number 18 on the base of the blade. Any info would be much appreciated!

    I know this is unrelated but he also gave me a swagger stick? I honestly have no idea what it is:

    A clearer picture along with better ones of the pommel and with it out of the scabbard.
