    Hi Scout, Thank you for your message and kind comments. I would love to sit in the middle of the room!! Problem is I can not find the middle, too much junk to climb over!! how about some photos of your swords, don't br shy!!
    With thanks, regards and best wishes Michael R
    Better late than ever.

    A few Q&D pics.
    Its easy to see, where my interest lies (though I like many variations of cold steel).

    I originally wanted to get some Schiavonas, but at the time they were a little rich for my blood.

    Besides I quite like these - in fact Im a huge fan. The historic importance of these sabres in terms of battlefield effectiveness can not be overestimated IMO.
    Interesting to note the variations, as so many countries used the sabre. Blade tips are different, scabbards tip are different,some have 'sloping'ends to the handle, some dont. They diiffer in overall size as well.
    I have scabbards for all, but one scabbard is hung by wires, that I didnt remove.

    The latter pic may show the very pronounced reinforced area of the tip, which made these so very very devastating.

    Hi Scout, Thank you for posting the photos and the narative. Like you, I too am of the opinion that this particular weaqpon is both functionally very effective yet still very attractive. I only have one which is German and I will post a couple of photos of it even though it has no scabbard and is in pretty poor condition. If I were an infantry soldier facing a bunch of screaming cavalry troopers waving sabres like these, I would need to be wearing brown trousers!!
    Thank you once again and regards Michael R

    Yes, on both counts; very effective and still very attractive.

    And yes, I imagine the pucker factor would have been quite high.

    Must have taken some guts to face that back then.

    But as The Duke said; Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway

    Default Swords, Sabres and Imperial during the Third Reich

    I know its not III Reich but think the blade guys would appreciate a nice Imperial sword rather the folks on the Imperial forum who really get into gear, medals ,uniforms etc.
    Pictured is an Bavarian Curiassier Officer Sword, has the In Treue Fest on the blade and the maker Eickhorn with the early double squirrel, the crossguard has the Bavarian lion and the grip gilting with oakleaf design overall.
    Sorry for the foot and the blurry grip picture also for posting here.
