    Nice touch to the blade. Have you tried looking for the arms or achievement?

    FS: Indian Tulwar, 19th century

    I will be listing some Old Swords in nice condition and kept in a non-smoking home. I am a long-time member of this forum and known to several of its old-time members. I have sold to other members...

    Yes. I think the basic archer officer's hilt was used for other swords on request of the client, perhaps. I have one with such a hilt and a straight heavy single-edged blade (not a court-sword clade)...

    It looks to have a modified knuckle guard that is similar to that of an officer's sword of the royal archers in Scotland. This "pattern" of a knuckle guard (and the archer officer's shell guard) turn...

    The Spanish 1867 sword is a nice one. I have one in excellent condition, too, and I like it a lot. Just my opinion if I am allowed to say.

    Interestingly, I have two Austrian intendants' swords (small-sword patterns) "last" model. They are both good swords overall but one has a spring steel blade (still good for stabbing--far from being...

    Dale,

    Now I see the light. The grades avaialbe in German weapons does not make it any easier. I don't think we find this in French weapons of the same period. But all the patterns of swords and...

    Have some patience with me, Dale. My collecting interest is in small-swords, hunting swords, and early clamshell swords to 1840 or so. But I do like the German and Austrian swords of the later 19th...

    Dale,

    OK. I am now confused. The degen with clamshell guards is a German Empire sword and the saber is Saxony? Is that correct? This is a confusing topic if one is not (like me) a collector of...

    Dale,

    Ah, ha. I saw one years ago and it was marketed as a deluxe Prussian officer's degen--but then I saw it somewhere in a research source and it was said to be from one of the smaller German...

    Some say the degen is a deluxe version of the standard Prussian degan, but I don't think so. It's something else, isn't it?

    I believe I have seen this pattern sword with its blade having some nice floral etching. Perhaps it was an extra-cost feature.

    Thanks, Juan, for that input. I was hoping you would jump on this. My Spanish sword is double-edged, with a blunt section for the first 1/3--the edged portion is quite sharp and suited for cut or...

    Spanish Military Swords and Sabers

    I have noticed that many of these swords and sabers have a section of the blade (perhaps 1/3 the upper length) with no edges at all--they have a thick dulled section that would not lend itself to...

    Too bad. Antique weapons are usually shipped without hassel--well, here within the USA, that is. Hope you have it soon. :-)

    Not sure what else can be determined, Dale. But do you mean the Emperor and King Frederick III--the 100 days Kaiser?

    No problem. As you know, they are pretty hard to come by now but it's worth the wait. Ah, for the early 1980s when I first started collecting.
