Sales enquiries

The Knights head Trademark of W. R. Kirschbaum & Cie was used from 1862, so this sword was made, accepted (by the British) and then was made one or two years later when the 1864P came into service. This is the reason it is authentic and yet in such good condition. Apart from the maker's and acceptance mark (and spine "B" bend test mark), there are no other markings, no regimental markings, so it never made it to a regiment; hence the reason it is authentic yet in such great condition.

The 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard and scabbard have an even patina with slight pitting. The grip is in very good condition. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A truly great example of an iconic cavalry sword, and yours for just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AB07 (0106). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
