Article about: Hello. I'm guessing this is a WW1 degan sword. This era isn't what I'm used to collecting. I can't read german, so if someone can educate me and translate the engraving, that would be great.

    Thanks for the info. Are these pretty common pieces? The double hinged guard, was that just personal preference? Should I oil this sword like an other one?
