    German Officers sword

    I.m not sure that the rare swords went to WKC , these were items that were part of our History, I have an idea that these may have been sent to the Royal Small Arms display in Leeds UK, this is also the place where the Royal Enfield Small Arms factory located to, that was just down the road from me as Enfield lock is where I go fishing and the factory is now a Museum, its also the place where the Sten gun was made and most of the weapons used in WW1 and WW2, its also a place where parts that did not make the grade were tossed into the deep parts of the River Lee (all though they were not allow

    It actually looks like most of the production eqipment and parts were bought up by the WKC factory.

    German Officers sword

    One of my customers was Wilkinson Sword in Acton and I would go there every month to see what they wanted , and I would stay and watch them making and finishing swords, it was so interesting seeing how they did it, and as you walked into the main front of the office you looked up and saw all the different types of swords hanging on the wall, these dated from modern to very old and there was also original Claymores , these were huge and worth a fortune, i dont no what happened to it all when they closed but it was a real shame

    Home / About WKC / History Tradition since 1573 1560 The history of the company Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie (W.K.C.) in Solingen began in the early middle-ages, when the trademark „Kingshead“ was registered by the bladesmith Johannes Wundes in 1560. This trademark is one of the oldest registered and is still in use today. 1573 In the 16th century, the forging technique in Solingen was already quite advanced in its development and Wilhelm Weyersberg, the ancestor of one of the WKC founders, became mayor of the city of Solingen. During this period, the so called „Solinge

    German Officers sword

    Yes, the sword is very nice, only the scabbard has some damage to the paint. Luckily no dents. It's a WKC Solingen sword. You can just see the knight's helmet on the blade here. The WKC solingen factory is still in existence today, making swords, daggers and other dress uniform items. Have a look at their website - they are offering high quality products. Lots of very nice and decorative items there: https://www.wkc-solingen.de/en And they are offering refurbishment services too. I have been playing with the idea of sending the scabbard

    German Officers sword

    To be honest that sword is in very good condition, the only parts that I can see that are not 100% is the scabbard, the blade is very good and the guard is as well, from what I can see there,s no bad parts to it at all, if you really needed to you could have the scabbard re done by a Swordsmith who would make it look 100% original , but are you really worried about it, do you know the makers name under the Eagle,

    Most people would look at that and not bother , but you have this mind set of seeing some thing , knowing just what it is and getting it for a decent price, I had no idea about this and I dont think many people do , I have never seen one before, well done you
  27. In the summer of 2019, I was able to obtain this little baby to my collection. This one is in really good condition, and quite rare to come by these days. I stumbeled on it by chanse - I was searching for a ordinary non-collapsible field forge for my wife and kids to play with. ( It is really fun to heat up pices of steel and hammer it out into different tings ) Anyway, i came across it on a facebook sale with no firm price on it. I immediatly recognized it, and knew what it really was when i saw pictures of it, and offered the guy 300 euros for it, and he said yes to my offer.
