    Default Orange gripped Kriegsmarine sword...

    Here is a in my opinion, a beautifully salty Kriegsmarine sword I couldn't resist! Picked up off EBAN for a nice price, she is an ACS piece that came with its original portopee and a WW1 era sword hanger that came along for the ride! This is my first KM sword, and I have always wanted one.. never seen one that had a grip that toned orange like this.. neat!! Any and all comments appreciated, model#? Weimar era sword or early war?? THANKS for any input! Best, Kevin.

    WOW very Nice Kevin..looks great and appears much of the gilt still remains on the fittings..through the patina. The swordsmen here will like this one. Regards Larry

    Might be salty in your eye's but candy to mine. Love the folding hand guard and the engraving on the blade!
    A very nice pick up there!!

    Mini Quiz : What was that folding hand guard on the reverse side with the hole and pin match up created for?

    Thanks Ivan!

    Larry, thanks for comments, be interesting to hear your answer as I am stumped!

    Anyone have an approximate year of production on this sword? Kevin.

    I always thought the folding hand guard was for the slick look and for the Naval/Calvary forces,to be worn in tight/confining spaces.
    I have seen these in all types of service so I look forward to learning more here! Which is why I love this site!!!

    Im looking at this part of the hand guard...why was this created?

    Why for the Kriegsmarine ?

    and why not any other branch of service that does not have this special attachment?

    why do the Kriegsmarine dagger have a similar mechanism to hold the dagger in place ?

    I guess my Marine Corps answer of the sensitive hipped swabbies would not be correct. So here I am waiting for the correct answer
