  9. A German French Whatzit First Empire (?) Sabre

    A recent adoption I'm working on. Sometimes the offer is for less than one would bid. The blade is about 33 1/2" long. The etching goes right up the length of the fuller to the end. The hilt is...

    A Whatzit? What Timeline?

    Completely unmarked. A wayfarer bought it as an ACW officer's sword. It seems there are registration issues here, so I'm posting this around.

    French third republic?

    The appearance of Brian's example may be from cleaning off rust while preserving what is left in the fuller.

    Brian's blade looks fine to me and I agree the trellis effect in the ending of b&g was happening earlier than many maintain. I'd love to see more of Brian's find. The decoration is quite like some...

    I found this one in a gun shop and without a pommel nut. I added a simple cutlery collet nut and added the felt washer. I later sprayed the grip black but may return it to white at some...

    I think I'd call it a D guard, vs a P/RP.
