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.
