1845 Pattern Austrian Cavalry Officer's Sword, P Knecht Solingen

Sales enquiries

Marked "Wien" (Vienna) and "Solingen" to one side, "P Knecht" and what appears to be "L Pospischil" in script to the other (we think L Pospischil must be the name of the officer). This brute of a sword / sabre is clearly based directly upon the British 1821 pattern heavy cavalry officer's sword.




The awesome 34 1/2 inch blade is in good condition with the etching still visible and firm in the hilt. The superb guard / hilt is in very good condition, some patina. The fishskin grip is good though the twisted grip wire bindings are gone.

This sword will really impress you, and can be yours for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T85 (0795). Further / full sized images available upon request.
