The chequered grips are secured with two rivets. It has an up-swept quillon nickel plated cross guard. The riccaso of the blade has the characteristic ‘SMF Seated King’ trade mark of the manufacturer Stocker & Co, Solingen. The reverse is DRGM marked (Deutsche Reich Gebraumeister Patent Protection Quality Assurance mark introduced in 1891) and is engraved with retailer detail ‘Georg Wegener Verden Aller Erd-U Stassenbau’. It comes with its original black enamelled metal scabbard. The scabbard retains most of its original finish. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 10478
