    Hi Michal, may I say, you have an interesting sword there! However, like some of the previous comments, I have severe doubts as to its parentage!! At first glance, it is an Eickhorn "Lutzow" from the Field Marshal series. Then the blade has a seemingly poor representation of the Ernst Pack trade mark and given that the Field Marshal swords were, I believe, all patented I would question Pack copying it? Then I considered a replacement blade on a right hilt. Once again the warning bell started. The hilt looks real but on closer inspection, also looks unbalanced in that the grip flaps appear to be way too high on the back strap? I am not an expert and would not say it is wrong, but I would think long and hard before I would commit any hard cash to it.
    Hope I am not treading on any toes, these are only opinions born of observations

    Please note/compare the position of the back strap grip flaps
