you Local Library should have some books on how to identify swords
another way is look at the flat part of blade near the handle an see if the manufactures name is on the blade and a date
or take some pictures of the swords with close ups of the hilts and blades and post them some one should be able to help you

I am looking for some help identifying some antique swords I have inherited from my great-grandfather. There are six edged weapons in total, I know one is a french bayonet as it is signed and has a date. I can tell that one other is some kind of Kris and another I think is a Mandue, the other three I don't know where to start. Can anyone offer any suggestions of how to start identifying them since my family doesn't know anything about them?
