    Hi
    It looks good,just the grip didn't left factory like that.
    How can you tell that there is a plastic under the skin?
    Do you have a scabbard?

    No skin! Plastic handle.... There's no sign of the rivets being replaced.

    Ollar so far i have seen this type of grip on post war reproduction swords, and never on originals.

    I'm always interested in buying .something unusual! As the seller explained to me,"maybe a special order.".I am skeptical of such talk.But in this case, I looked under the microscope Assembly, and found no traces of repair sabers....That's why I offered you a topic of conversation. The scabbard is not..

    The grip does look like a post war restoration project. Could you provide some closeup pictures of the grip and rivets holding it in place?

    Sharkskin for grip covering was commonly used during the Imperial period for both EM off duty private purchase and officer's swords. But then discontinued as substitutes were used for later production that was carried over into the Weimar era. Likewise the TR era seeing plastic over wood cores. I can see where with a very high grade (and expensive ) special order were it's possible that a sword might possibly have a sharkskin grip - but not with an otherwise average/ordinary sword that strongly IMO suggests a postwar modification.
