    Hi Again, three more swords to view. I have switched manufacturer to WKC Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Cie of Solingen. All have standard single fuller blades and are leather scabbards with metal fittings.

    Sword 7 (174). Is in dire need of a clean and some TLC. It has a black scabbard with double ring brass suspension fittings and an etched blade. The backstrap is riveted. The Trade Mark is a King's Head coupled with a Knight's Helm over the initials "WKC".

    a. Obverse Langet. Plain.
    b. Reverse langet. Plain.
    c. Rarety. Quite scarce.

    Sword 8 (155). This sword has a brown scabbard with double ring brass suspension fittings and a plain blade. The backstrap is riveted. The Trade Mark is a Knight's Helm over the initials "WKC". Additionaly, the blade is marked "Muhlenfeld Barmen", probably a wholesale seller?

    a. Obverse Langet. Plain.
    b. Reverse langet. Plain.
    c. Rarety. Quite rare.

    Hello Once Again, Three more swords for viewing.

    Sword 10 (152) This sword has a standard black steel scabbard with a single ring suspension fitting and a plain blade. The backstrap is riveted with a pommel in the form of a jawless lion head cast in brass but devoid of glass eyes. The grip is of wood with a shagrin cover and brass wire wrap. The Trade Mark is a King's Head along side a Knight's Helm over the initials "WKC".

    a. Obverse Langet. Crossed cannon superimposed over foliage.
    b. Reverse langet. Small plain shield of elegant style within a foliage wreath of, left laurel (signifying victory) and right oak (signifying streangth).
    c. Rarety. Quite common.

    Sword 11 (124). This is one of my "work in progress" (WIP) swords and is to be renovated. The backstrap appears to be steel affixed directly to the blade tang with a pommel in the form of a lion head with red glass eyes. The grip is of wood with a plastic cover and brass wire wrap. There is no Trade Mark. However, the style of the reverse langet is common to a number of WKC made sword patterns and my assumption is that this is indeed a WKC manufactured sword?? If you know different or disagree, please let me know.

    a. Obverse Langet. Crossed cannon superimposed over foliage.
    b. Reverse langet. Small plain shield of non standard style surmounted by a Knight's Helm (WKC?) superimosed over foliage with a patterned outer boarder. The shield and helm appear to be a fairly common device on WKC swords.
    c. Rarety. Quite common.

    Sword 12 (177). This sword has a natural finish steel scabbard with double ring suspension fittings and a plain blade. The backstrap is attached directly to the blade tang with a pommel in the form of a jawless lion head in gilded steel but devoid of glass eyes. The grip is of wood with a plastic cover and brass wire wrap. There is no Trade Mark. However, the style of the reverse langet is common to a number of WKC made sword patterns and my assumption is that this is indeed a WKC manufactured sword?? If you know different or disagree, please let me know. The blade spine bears the etched inscription "DOV" in a small pannel. These initials stand for Deutche Offizier Verein.

    a. Obverse Langet. Crossed cannon superimposed over foliage and very similar to #11 above.
    b. Reverse langet. Small plain shield of non standard style surmounted by a Knight's Helm (WKC?) superimosed over foliage with a patterned outer boarder. The shield and helm appear to be a fairly common device on WKC swords. Again, very similar to #11 above.
    c. Rarety. Quite common.

    Hi Larry, Thank you for your comment and "Like". What do you think of the new layout and listing by manufacturer? I can not make my mind up whether to keep it as is or revert to the previous layout using pages rather than photos. Do you have an opinion??
    Cheers Michael
