    That's what I meant--the hilt was put together from various hilt parts. What do you think about the blade?

    The grip is too long and the knuckle bow should come to the center of the pommel not so far below it. That's my opinion, anyway. :)

    Thanks. Yes, that blade looks heftier. He could buy one--could he wear it for any functions? :)

    It looks like a Prussian officer's dress degen without the grip's wire wrap. There were slight differences in the hilt pieces by the manufacturers.

    Dale--why is this an extra purchase item? It seems rather plain to me--is because the blade is heftier, perhaps?

    Nice. I am thinking the first one is French (perhaps with a later replaced blade) and the others are English. Enjoy!

    Some sellers want to make $$$ on shipping, too. I just won't buy from them no matter the piece. Other sellers are honest with shipping and a pleasure to work with.

    The sample I posted in the pic is a trooper's sword--yes, I figured that was the case from the lack of adornment. Is there an officer's version of this sword?

    Thanks, Dale. I was hoping you would jump in and was going to PM you if no word from you soon. I like the Schwerer Reiter sword. Any pix of an officer's "model"?

    They are often found on eBay--nice swords in good shape for 300.00 - 750.00 USD or so. I often wonder why so cheap as they look like nice swords/sabers, perhaps intended for dress, but nonetheless...

  20. Bavarian Officers' Swords--How Good Are They

    Well, the title says it all. Just wondering how battle worthy such swords were. They are handsome looking but were they just for dress?

    Hey, there, I was thinking that the robust (well, let me say "more robust") ones at the link you gave would make good horsemen's' swords. I don't know if the Filipinos of the period rode...

    Sometimes the overriding concern as we collect is, do we like the sword or not, does it please us all around? That is what ultimately matters to me and perhaps this is because I am a devotee of the...
