"Épée écossaise à poignée en corbeille
Acier, avec cuir, peau de requin et fil de fer.  La poignée en corbeille est doublée de cuir, la fusée est entourée de peau de requin et de fil de cuivre.  Vers 1760-1790, ou plus tard.  ...
À usage militaire.  Bien que la poignée puisse dater des années 1760-1790, il est possible que ce soit un modèle du même genre fabriqué plus tard."

This blade is marked 'Andrea Ferara,' a great Italian bladesmith, whose name was forged on many arms of the period to give a false sense of quality." ...
