    I like the descriptive lettering A.B.C. in the last few posts,, but everything that has been posted has much documented support. IMO I think its going in a good direction. It shows good comprehension of the swords. Regards Larry

    Hi Kris, Thanks once again. It is a very attractive sword and one one that I would be happy to add to my collection. Best I find some Belian Congo collectables to trade. Does the sword have a manufacturer's name or logo?
    Cheers Michael R

    Hi All, Some more swords to view. We are still looking at WKC manufactured swords and the following sword are all army patterns. Hope that they are of interest and help to identify some of the vast variety of swords by this high quality producer of edged weaponry.

    Regards Michael Ryan

    Sword 13 (142) The Trade Mark is a King's Head along side a Knight's Helm over the initials "WKC". The inclusion of the trade mark with the knight's helm shown on the reverse langet of this sword does, in my opinion, lend credability to the theory that unmarked blades in conjunction with this particular langer pattern are by WKC??

    a. Hilt. Cast in brass. The backstrap is attached directly to the blade tang. The grip is of wood devoid of cover with a brass wire wrap. The lack of a grip cover is, in my experience, very unusual. There is no evidence of the removal of any cover material. Therefore, my assumption is that this sword was purchased as it is shown.
    b. Obverse Langet. A floral wreath superimposed over crossed swords and crossed lances. Whilst accepting that the usual generic insignia on German swords carried by cavalry is a pair of crossed sabres, when lances are also incorporated with the sabres, there is a belief that the sword belonged to a member of a lancer or ulan regiment??
    c. Reverse langet. WKC style knight's helm with mantle surmounting a styled shield.
    d. Pommel. Lion head with red glass eyes.
    e. Blade. Plain, plated with pipe or quill spine.
    f. Scabbard. Standard blued steel scabbard with double ring suspension fittings. The lower suspension fitting has been professionaly removed leaving only the scabbard band. This modification was possibly done to conform with the single suspension TR pattern scabbards? However, there is no suspension loop on the reverse side of the scabbard. Drag stamped with number "10".
    g. Rarety. Quite scarce.
