It’s from mid-16th Century, sabers were popular, but also the guy isn’t the most detail oriented artist and a lot of his messers and falchions look like sabers and scimetars.

I don’t think they were just dealing with soft targets look at all the giant scary looking morning stars, hammers, flails etc.
