PETER KNECHT SABER DATED 1848
Saber with reverse-P grip, steel mounted with brass plating over it, with shagreen-wrapped grips with two strands of twisted wire in the grooves. The single-edged, curved blade is 33 in. L x 1 in. W at ricasso and has a clipped point. The blade is etched with generic martial panoplies and floral scrolling, so it is likely one made for export to the American market. It is marked 'P. Knecht' on the obverse face near ricasso and 'Solingen / 1848' on recto. Some light wear to grip and the extreme tip is bent slightly upwards—easily corrected.
