RARE, Georgian Era Naval Captain's Sword Stick With Very Old German Late 1600s – Early 1700s GIO KNEGT Solingen Rapier Sword Blade. ED 2331

This is an unusual original C1750 Georgian period Naval Captain's sword stick. It has a very old German Solingen made 30" Rapier blade from a Rapier sword. The blade has light staining consistent with age. One side is marked '++ IN++ SOLINGEN++' With Stylised Anchor mark. The reverse is marked '++GIO++ KNEGT++' with the same 'Anchor' mark (maker, Johannes Knecht. “In Solingen” proclaims the sword was made in the German city of Solingen. More than one Knecht manufactured swords in Solingen, leaving the date range for the production of this sword A.D. 1670 – 1805. The style of the sword blade, however, suggests an earlier manufacture date, perhaps in the late 1600s – early 1700s). The ricasso has is holed to fit the the locking mechanism of the sheath. The contoured wood handle has no damage and just the bumps and scuffs to be expected. It is complete with it's original wooden scabbard with metal throat and tip mounts. The handle of the sword stick and scabbard are covered in a tar finish for Naval use to protect against sea water. The scabbard's sprung push button retaining catch retains the sword securely in the scabbard. Price for this rare Sword Stick with early Solingen Rapier sword blade includes UK delivery. Sn 9402
