    Sword 55 (60) This sword is a Model M1889 Prussian Infantry Officers sword by Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Cie, WKC, WK&C. The trade mark comprises a King's Head coupled with a Knight's Helmet over the initials "WK&C". There are two basic patterns of this sword, fixed and folding guard. The fixed guard has three vertical guard bars covering the knuckles whilst the folding guard type only employs two. However, there are likely to be variations. Additionally, higher quality and presentation swords tend to include far more hilt decoration. The Imperial Prussian Royal Cypher is positioned centrally on the grip. Missing on this sword. This is a heavy duty fighting sword.

    a. Hilt. Cast in gilded brass, the hilt comprises seven parts,
    (1) Oval tang nut.
    (2) Pommel cap.
    (3) Knuckle bow and cross guard. On the fixed guard model, this item includes the cartouche.
    (4) Cartouche. Not a separate item on the fixed guard sword.
    (5) Furrule
    (6) Finger support. This is usually an optional item so may/may not be present. In this case present but cut.
    (7) Grip assembly. This includes the wooden former, cover and wire wrap. In this case shagreen with a brass wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. Not Applicable.
    c. Reverse langet. Not applicable.
    d. Pommel. Plain oval tang nut and cap assembly.
    e. Blade. Plain, plated with double full size fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Missing.
    g. Rarety. Common.

    Sword 56 (90) Maufactured by the firm of Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Cie, WKC, WK&C, the Trade Mark is a King's Head along side a Knight's Helmet over the initials "WK&C". 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 with a shagreen cover and a brass wire wrap.
    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, it is my 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, polished steel with single full size fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel scabbard with single ring suspension fitting and rectangular suspension loop to rear.
    g. Rarety. Quite scarce.

    Sword 57 (138) Maufactured by the firm of Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Cie, WKC, WK&C. The Trade Mark is a King's Head along side a Knight's Helmet over the initials "WK&C". This sword is an Imperial Navy Officer's pattern. There are two basic patterns of this sword, fixed and folding guard. The fixed guard sword has a basket style hilt incorporating a cartouche on which is a representation of an early styled fouled anchor ensigned by the Imperial Prussian Crown but no Royal Cypher. The folding guard type is similar however the cartouche can be folded back against the sword grip. There are many variations to the designs of the hilts of both patterns. Additionally, higher quality and presentation swords tend to include greater hilt decoration and etched blades.

    a. Hilt. Cast in gilded brass with the backstrap attached directly to the blade tang. The grip is made from ivory with a brass wire wrap and there is a small moveable flap which forms the reverse side of rhe guard and when closed, locks the sword into its scabbard.
    b. Obverse Langet. Not Applicable.
    c. Reverse langet. Not applicable.
    d. Pommel. Lion Head with Green and Red glass eyes.
    e. Blade. Unattributed etch with a "pipe" or "quill" spine and no fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Standard Naval pattern leather scabbard with double ring suspension and drag, all produced in gilded brass. There is no loop to the reverse side of the scabbard, however there is a stud which holds the reverse hilt fitting.
    g. Rarety. Quite rare.
