    Sword 23 (189) The Trade Mark on the blade of this sword is a King's Head in cojunction witha Knight's Helmet over WKC on the obverse side of blade rather than the more usual reverse. Although a quite common pattern sword, it has a very elegant blade with fine etching. Contrary to what it says in the introduction paragraph, this pre TR period!!



    a. Hilt. Cast brass with backstrap attached using a pair of brass rivets. The grip is of wood with a shagreen covering and a brass wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. Plain.
    c. Reverse langet. Plain.
    d. Pommel. Plain dove head.
    e. Blade. Polished steel with single fullers and unatributed etching.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel with single ring suspension fitting and a suspension loop to the reverse side of the scabbard.
    g. Rarety. Quite rare with an etched blade.

    Sword 24 (188) The Trade Mark on the blade of this sword is a Knight's Helmet over WKC on the obverse side of blade rather than the more usual reverse. Unlike the vast majority of TR Army swords, this particular pattern bears niether a National emblem nor an arm of service device ergo, it may be a Weimar period item??

    a. Hilt. Cast brass with backstrap attached using a pair of brass rivets. The grip is of wood with a plastic covering and a brass wire wrap. The leather attachment between the ferrule and the upper surface of the cross guard is what remains of the fore finger loop. The loop was designed in order to render the sword more manageable when carried out of its scabbard. When damaged like this, the broken ends are cut away leaving only what appears to be a double washer. I have heard of these parts being referred to as "spacers" for loose hilts which they are not.
    b. Obverse Langet. A vertical wreath of laurel signifying victory within an outlined shield.
    c. Reverse langet. A stylised shield encompassed within a laurel wreath. The whole within an outlined shield..
    d. Pommel. Dove head in the form of an elongated oval button.
    e. Blade. Plated steel with single fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel with single ring suspension fitting and a suspension loop to the reverse side of the scabbard.
    g. Rarety. Quite scarce.

    Hi, A minor change in direction, moving from WKC swords to another renouned manufacturur, Carl Eickhorne. Thid batch comprises German Army swords both of pre and post 1933 production. I hope that you find them of interest.

    Regards Michael Ryan

    Sword 25 (157) The trade mark on the blade of this swordi is a pair of conjoined squirrels over the initials "CE". This sword has the weight, balance, look and general feel of a fighting rather than a dress weapon.

    a. Hilt. Cast in steel with no evidence of gilding and the backstrap attached directly to the blade tang. The grip is of wood with black plastic covering and a steel wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. Crossed connon within a stylised floral wreath on a plain outlined shield.
    c. Reverse langet. Plain.
    d. Pommel. Lion head.
    e. Blade. Plain, plated with single full size fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Standard natural steel scabbard with a single brass ring suspension fitting and loop to the reverse side of the scabbard. There is evidence that this scabbard has been painted black but not professionally. I would suggest by the original owner for field use?
    g. Rarety. Quite scarce.

    Hi Fred, I absolutely agree with all you have said. However I must try and correct one minor error which I beleive you have made. I would suggest that the P guard swords are the evelutions of the P1796 British cavalry sabre and that the Prussian M1811 Bluchersabel is such an evelution?? Our French friends were very upset with us Brits as they considdered the 1796 as an inhu
    man weapon because of the scale of wounds the blade inflicted on their troops. I have a rather poor 1796 and even as a very obsolete weapon over 200years old, I would not like to be on the receiving end of that fearsome blade!! Post some of your photos and if they are as bad as you say, we can have a laugh as well as an insight into your collection!!
    Cheers once again Michael R
    Hello Michael, You were correct (post # 127), and I finally found a German reference that stated that thousands of the British M 1796 sabers were supplied to Prussia, with the sword being given formal - informal (uncertain) designation of the Prussian cavalry saber M 1808. Best Regards, Fred
