I did not knew you were into reenactment, that is really cool!!! I wish I could help you more but I'm no where near as knoledgeable as most of the fellows that already replyed. The closest thing to help I can offer, is for you to check Stefan Schmalhaus channel, he's got great videos of knives from that time (I think). Please tell us what you end up getting.
