Kinder Sabel

I thought I'd add to this interesting topic by posting this kinder sabel.

I ran across this at a Flea Market years ago. Lucky for me the vendor had no idea what it was beyond a scaled down version of a sword.

Note the sharkskin and wire wrap. Unfortunately, there is no makers mark on it. This example is 30 inches long.

Most often these are in the 89 pattern. I think that the Doves Head pattern is less frequently encountered.

The blade on this one doesn’t show any obvious signs of “sword fighting”. Notice that the point has been blunted to reduce the probability of children being skewered by their friends.
