This is my Brazilian sword. It was made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum in Solingen, and appears to be modeled after the German 1889 quillback sword. I have just reviewed an excellent 2017 post by Victory Museum about Brazilian swords and saw some that were similar, but not the same as mine. The guard is stamped with the Brazilian crest, and 2° over 15. Does anybody know what branch of the military used this sword, and during what time period?
