Import by famed maker Weyersberg Kirschbaum with the knight’s head logo to the ricasso of the 35” broad fullered blade. Crisp with smooth patina and small edge nicks consistent with use in battle. Brass hilt with dark patina and scratches to the pommel top. Wire-wrapped leather-covered grip complete with light surface wear. Classic example of a German import for Union Cavalry issue, of which there were thousands.
