    Sword 80 (5) The Trade Mark on the blade of this sword is a Knight's Helmet over the initials WKC on the obverse side of blade rather than the more usual reverse. Although a quite rare pattern sword, this is not a style that am fond of and I suspect was not particularly popular??

    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 guard is unusual in that it is "flatened" with the detailing on either side edge and not on the leading edge as in conventional styled swords.
    b. Obverse Langet. Military style eagle within a plain outline border and facing to its right.
    c. Reverse langet. Plain shield within a plain outline border.
    d. Pommel. Dove head pattered with foliage.
    e. Blade. Plain 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 rare.

    Sword 81 (139) Maufactured by the firm of Weyersberg Kirschbaum and Cie, WKC, WK&C. The Trade Mark is a Knight's Helmet over the initials "WKC". This sword is a TR 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. 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 carved wood with an off white platic covering and a brass wire wrap. 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 on a plated blade with single 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.
