  1. Thank you. You have been great help! You wouldn't happen to know the ballpark price for this sabre? I found from the internet so far just gilt and/or engraved officer models which are considerably more expensive than this "troopers" model.
  2. Schnitzler & Kirschbaum, from Sollingen seems to be the manuafcturer, so blade is German manufactured? Is it rare that it is?
  3. Thank you for the comment! I heard someone hinting it could be a saxon one as well? I'll check for markings. The sword fits in the scabbard like a fist in the eye. The scabbard even has for those "spikes(?)" vertically with the blade a place (see photo). Edit: It has a mark behind one of these spikes on the root of the blade, S&K.
  4. I believe I have here a 1788 light troopers cavalry sabre. Could anyone shed me some light on this? The handle.

    Very impressive.
  6. Fascinating to read as always. I have a Militärpass to a man who lost his right eye at Estreés just some weeks later.
