BACKGROUND: The Sword/Sabre is an age old military tradition, that evolved from a functional weapon into an item of uniform dress ornamentation by the start of WWI. This strong tradition continues in many army’s to this day as a symbol of strength and power. After Hitler’s rise to power in 1933 and the reintroduction of conscription in early 1935 a wide variety of new sword and sabre designs were introduced to outfit the rapidly growing Wehrmacht.

Plated blade is excellent showing light runner marks/age and no nicks or cuts to cutting edge. Blade is complete with a red leather buffer pad. Scabbard retains most of original factory enamel throughout all surfaces. Nice sword.
