    Looks like a WW1 german offices sword that has been cut down.

    Hello mayralphie. I very much like the modifications to the blade it was cut down fairly clean. If I had to guess based off the given picture the sword was a NCO German dress variety . But cleanly done as well. I can't authticate it as good or bad. my evaluation confidence isn't quite there yet. But I do like it. Thanks for showing us your pictures. I hope soon you receive great news from a fellow member more knojwledgeable than myself.: Best regard.

    I agree with the above comments re the cut down sword.

    The other blade pictured is an E.G. Waterman knife.
