    Default Kinder saber with double etched blade

    Hi gang i have just purchased this kinder saber which is etched with an inscription which i think reads "from father of the war at Christmas" and i think the boys name on the reverse side (which i cant really work out ), it has templar knights and tents also etched on the blade, also near the tip you can make out the maiden hair damascus i am tying to work out who the maker is but know as of yet, any information would be welcome and hope you like it as much as i do, please excuse the pics as they really dont do it any justice whatsoever
    thanks for looking , Ronnie

    That's easily the nicest Kindersabel i've seen Ronnie old lad! The pointy end looks pretty dangerous still, most are far more rounded off than that! Is it around 20-22" long? I wonder if you could research the surname and find out who the boys dad was? Looking at it you'd think they were a pretty wealthy family, as this little sword would have been quite expensive compared to most others of it's type. Marvellous.

    Thanks Ned like you say this must have cost a pretty penny when made, i cant quite figure the second name I think it looks like Paul Nau?? still open to suggestions the length is 25 inches long you can also see the remains of some gold guilding to the blade just behind the chappe, the scabbard is also dent free, i will keeptrying to see if i can find out any history on the name, could anyone also reccomend a site where i may get some info on the name please?
    thanks again Ned for the nice comments and all who have commented
    cheers ronnie

    The name could be 'Vau'. If it is, it's a rare one that seems to appear from around the old Prussian states of Mecklenberg and Pomerania.

    Then again, it may not be.....

    Where's old HPL when you need him eh?
