A very large and substantial German 19th Century Heavy Cavalry Trooper’s Sword. These swords were made by the German sword making company, Schnitzler and Kirshbaum, who produced huge quantities of military swords to countries throughout Europe and the world. The sword comprises a large iron two-bar hilt with a grip wrapped in leather and bound with copper or brass twistwire. The blade is very impressive and single-fullered – it would have been pretty devastating in the hand and especially when on horseback and at the gallop.
Condition of the sword is very good – many of these sword types are in pretty poor condition and have lost their grip wrap over time and also the scabbard. Blade length is 35 inches (42 inches overall).
