Kaiser's Bunker Sword Sale

In our dining room for several years, have been two sword cases. We are building a new home and it has been negotiated that I can have one sword case. Not two. One sword case is better than none....

So here are the swords that I have to sell before we move.

Each is the best example I could find. Prices are exactly what I paid, and they are excellent prices compared to dealer's sites.

Here is a chance to get some superb examples of Imperial edged weapons. That's my sales pitch.

If you have questions or would like extra photos, email, I am happy to oblige.

Full guarantee as to originality, a full week inspection if you need it. I would prefer a money order or bank draft but will accept Paypal if you use the "Family/friends option so I do not get hit with the fee. Prices are in USD. Payments can be spread out over two months if that helps. Postage will be around $35 to the US or Canada. Buy two or more, and I will pay your postage within North America. Unfortunately, postage overseas is ridiculous, but of course possible. My email is [email protected]

Cavalry NCO M1852 pattern ON HOLD

Cavalry NCO M1852 pattern (identical to an officer's except it has no wire around the sharkskin grip). Carried by all cavalry Senior NCOs except Kürassier. Husaren NCO's also could carry the pattern with a Lion or Leopard head like the Artillery Officers. Sharkskin grip shows some wear to the black die from age and handling. The nickeled guard is superb. Blade length 33".No maker's stamp. Black scabbard paint shows some light scuffing. Blade is perfect except for a small area of greying near the tip. $375

WWI Ersatz sabre below is ON HOLD

A very difficult to find Imperial German WWI Ersatz sabre sword made by Carl Eickhorn and marked with the imperial cypher on the spine of the blade. Officially it is called a Kavalleriesaebel, Aushilfswaffe. These were originally made for export and then the export was stopped due to the war and they were issued to the German Army Mounted Troops. It has the KD89 grip and pipeback blade. Marked Carl Eickhorn Solingen. Massive, heavy blade. This one is as close to perfect as you could hope for. Near mint. These are very tough to find, I have only seen one wartime photo of it being used. Its massive and awesome. Near mint $450

Would the Jager zu Pferde have used the Model 1852 Cavalry sword pictured above?

Yes the JzP was in line with the other cavalry and this would have been carried by NCOs. The higher numbered JzP Refers also could have carried the WWI Ersatz sabre Kavalleriesaebel, Aushilfswaffe.
