    ~ Circa 1635-40 Rare London Cromwellian Troopers Sword By Jacob Brach ~


    Jacob Brach was a sword manufacturer who worked in Solingen between 1610 and 1630 and moved to London afterwards.

    Like a few other German manufacturers his swords are marked using the Latin language and Christian symbols.

    The blade is marked on both sides ‘+JACOB BRACH – LONDINI+’ and ‘IHS+IHS’.

    ~ IHS Monogram ~

    The IHS is a symbolic monogram of Christ used by the Roman Catholic Church. This monogram consists of the Greek letters iota, eta, and sigma, the first three letters of the name Iesous (Greek for Jesus),

    The same letters are also used to spell out the Latin phrase “Iesous Hominem Salvator,” (Jesus, savior of man).

    It relates to the story of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine who saw in his vision the Chi-Rho (the Greek pronunciation of IHS) sign. In the vision, Constantine was reported to have heard a voice proclaim, “In this symbol, thou shall conquer.” Therefore, the IHS has also stood for “In Hoc Signo” (in this sign).

    The basket is shaped as a leaf and decorated with South American engravings.

    The blade is double –fullered and the grip is made of ray skin.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 30 inches (76 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 36 inches (91.5 cm).

    It weighs 800 grams.

    ~Condition ~

    The sword is in great condition for its age.

    The ray skin grip is partially preserved, missing its wiring.

    The engravings on the basket are fully visible and remain clear.

    The blade is in very good condition for its age with the expected darkening and almost no surface rust.

    The blade has just one tiny nick.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
