Original Brazilian Model 1880 Cavalry Saber with Scabbard by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co. of Solingen Germany

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This very nice Brazilian M1880 Cavalry Saber was most likely released in 1976 from military stores in Rio De Janeiro, along with a lot of other now obsolete edged weapons. It is in very good condition, with only storage wear, and little sign of actual use in the field.

The blade surface is clean and bright, without pitting and is unsharpened, displaying some wear and staining along its 35 1/4 inch length, along with some past pitting. It has the correct M proof mark on the spine. The cupped steel guard is marked with the letters E.U.B. for Estados Unidos Brasil (United States of Brazil), and early name for the country. The hilt has pressed black leather grips secured with five steel rivets, with a crack in one side near the lower double rivets, which is commonly seen on these. Overall length of the sword is 31 1/2 inches.

The blade ricasso is maker marked WEYERSBERG / KIRSCHBAUM & Co. / SOLINGEN, indicating manufacture by the legendary firm of Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie. This company is a famous manufacturer of military swords and cutlery in Solingen, Germany - a city famous since the middle ages for its metal-working and craftsmanship in sword making. The traditional manufacturing of swords at WKC dates back to the year 1774 when the Weyersberg first registered the ''Kings head'' as their trademark. Later in 1883 the company merged with the Kirschbaums and the company WKC was formed as it exists today.

The included steel scabbard is in great shape, and just has a few rust spots and tiny dents. It also has the A.G.R.J proof mark on the drag.

It's very hard to find any South American swords especially one with sharp clear Brazil markings and in such fine condition. Ready to display!
