    Ooh - that's phosphoric acid, I think. Isn't that kind of harsh? Depending on how the sword looks in person, I might go for Renaissance Metal Decorroder. I think Dom once said he has used that...

    I love basket hilts! I think the partial basket configuration on this one may be intentional - from the pics so far, the sides look symmetrical to me. Looks like a great project, Dom, at least for...

    David,

    How did you secure the twisted wire to the grip?

    David, your sword seemed awfully familiar, and then I realized that it looks an awful lot like this one:

    I know next to nothing about Prussian swords, so can't contribute to that part of the discussion. I do wonder why your son chose Prussian swords, and those three in particular. Whatever the reason,...

    This sword finally sold for US $317.36. At least it didn't sell for the value of a real antique.

    I think that this is true for the sellers of outright fakes. However, I do see some sellers who seem (to my, admittedly, less trained eye) to have genuine stuff, but they are missing (or have...

    The Discriminating General currently offers a P1897 on this page: http://www.militaryheritage.com/swords2.htm. I can't see the cypher in their posted pictures, but their text description states,

    Just as Robert had done, I also sent a note to the seller with questions on his basket hilt, with the following response:

    Similar 'out of the office' reply to that received by Robert. Perhaps it...
  18. Antique 1865 Scottish Military Officer Sword?

    This one seems a bit odd, and, in fact, looks to me remarkably like the offerings from Discriminating General. Am I being overly paranoid?...

    US M1850 (not -51) Foot Officer Sword

    US M1852 (not -51) Naval Officer Sword
