This is a sword that has been passed down for two generations in my family. I am charged with handing it down in the next ten years or so. I know nothing about it. I showed some sword enthusiasts this, and they told me the following:
1. The two little knives were for eating on a ship. The blunt one was the fork, and the sharp one is for cutting.
2. The handle was man made. You can tell from how inconsistent the design etchings in the metal are, and there is a metal line down one side of the handle showing where they fused it to the blade.
That is all I know, and would love any information. I have no problem taking more pictures of it, and would love an estimated value.
