    I think it's maybe WW1 Prussian. Wilhelm II eagle guard.
    As I am no expert on these I could possibly be incorrect though.

    All the best

    I think it's a m89 infantry sword.
    I can't place the sword knot.

    Well all I can say is it is produced by WKC. This looks like it could be Prussian

    Prussian or from Wurttemburg.
    The colors and pattern of the sword knot would
    tell us a lot but I can not find my color chart.

    It's the Prussian Infantry Officer's Degen (IOD) Model of 1889, but what is not clear in the images is if it has a grip cipher. Regards, FP
