1811M Prussian Blucher Trooper's Sabre, S&K
In very good condition, a scarce original 1811 model Prussian
cavalry trooper's Blucher sabre.
Marked "A M XV 1 79" to both the langet and scabbard
for Artillery Munitions 15th Army Corps / Feld-Artillerie Regt,
1st Troop 79th weapon", dated 1831 to spine, marked to maker
S&K (Schnitzler & Kirschbaum) on the scabbard's drag / chape.
This sabre is in exceptionally good condition with the bonus of
matching numbers to the sword and scabbard. The forward cutting
edge of the blade also has period nicks, possibly from the Schleswig
Wars, Austro-Prussian War, or Franco-Prussian War.
The 32 inch blade is in very good condition save for several period
nicks, and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt very good, and the original
grip also good. Heavy steel scabbard with some signs of wear (small
dents, etc.) and aging. The sabre sheathes and draws very well.
If you like British 1796P light cavalry sabres you will love this
one, as it is modeled on the 1796P but much sturdier and heavier.
A well above average example; yours for only £(too late,
sold! But we will disclose the original sales price for a small
fee). Please quote item reference M61 (1257). Further / full sized
images available upon request.
