Dutch Klewang Model 1898 (Sabre Marechaussee),
In good aged condition, a scarce Dutch Klewang Model 1898 (Sabre
Marechaussee), a true / earliest O.I. M.1898
A lot of sellers claim the Dutch Klewang they are selling is an
1898 model, but very few are; this one is. Tang rivet, Lunescheloss
od Solingen made, black ribbed wooden grip; a true, original m.1898.
Plus this one is unit marked.
The 24 1/2 inch blade is in good order with old nicks to the cutting
edge. Blade firm in hilt. Steel hilt with age but in good order.
The ribbed black wooden grip is good, worn and aged. The leather
scabbard, unit marked, is sound, some surface leather losses. The
sword sheathes and draws well.
Not many of these around, just do a Google to see. A veritable
bargain at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item
reference number V83 (1072). Further / full sized pictures available
