    I would expect a marking somewhere on a vintage German-Produced Blade...If not a manufacturer's logo then at least a DRGM for a pre-45 piece/export piece ...(?)
    I look forward to other members' learned opinions concerning this attractive Hirschfaenger...

    The etching is on two sides and goes all the way up the ricasso to the shell very beautiful.
    I removed the handle no makers mark there .

    Welcome to the Forum! There are several Members here specializing in German Blades - Hopefully they'll be able to provide you with more info soon...

    Photos are not the best, but it looks like a genuine hunting knife, probably Weimar period. From what we can actually see, a quality piece. The lack of a makers mark probably because it was sold through a hunting shop, or as a blank blade for a custom etching later.

    Welcome to the forum! I agree with Anderson it is a weimar early period piece. Short version based on blade and scabbard. Is there a colored felt buffer washer between crossguard and scabbard? can you shoot pic? Also can you please shoot a better image of both sides of etched blade for us? I am not a cutlass expert. Based on fittings and overall construction I am comfortable it is not a reproduction. It could be an early Alcoso, WKC, Clemen & Jung or Eickhorn unmarked piece but I cannot say for certain. Seeing both etchings on blade up close could help further. I know it is common for some to be unmarked. That is about all I can add at this point.
