    ~ WW1 Era German Troopers Sabre ~


    Here we have a sabre used by the Imperial German Army during or just after World War 1. The slightly longer blade would usually suggest it was one of those used by the Cavalry rather than Infantry or Artillery but the blade lengths seem to have varied from anywhere between 30 and 35 inches across the troop types.

    Based originally of the German Blücher sabre which in turn was based on the British 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre this is one of the last in the line of a sword design with a rich history leading back to Le Marchant and was among one of the last swords to be used in combat before the sword became obsolete.

    The sword is a cutter with some potential for thrusts, the blade design and use having varied only a little since the late 18th century.

    There is a maker’s mark visible on the ricasso. What can be seen is ‘ERT LOSCHE, HAMM’ with the spaces left I’d guess a local blade maker in Hamm, Westphalia. Also there is the faint impression of a last letter that looks like an ‘N’ or an ‘R’.

    The sword has a stirrup guard and a long slightly curved blade with a single fuller.

    The grip is wood covered in an early plastic with brass wiring.

    Overall it is a wonderful find to see a troopers blade from imperial Germany and a good addition to any WW1 or German militaria collection.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The sword in its scabbard weighs 805 g.

    The sword in its scabbard is 39 inches (99 cm).

    The depth of the guard is 5.5 inches (14 cm)

    The length of the blade is 34 (86.3 cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    Overall the sword is in good condition.

    Some minor paint scratches to the scabbard.

    There is some wear to the finish on the guard.

    The stirrup guard is very slightly loose.

    There is a small crack in the plastic on the lower edge of the grip.
