Here is a cool looking sword that is a cool style. This is the style that is known as the Model 1811 Prussian cavalry saber. This one was made by the firm of Heinrich & Robert Boker and is so engraved at the base of the blade. On the other side it has the location of their factory in Remscheid. The maker book states that the Boker Brothers went into production of swords in 1829. They state that by 1830, the firm was producing 2,000 swords per week. Robert emigrated to Canada in 1837 and so we know it would have been made between 1829 and 1837. The blade is full-length at 31-3/4th inches. you can tell by the nicks along the edge that this sword was used. On the flats of the blade you can still see the engraving that includes the floral and patriotic designs. There is still some of the gold in the protected areas of the engraving. The guard has the classic "P" design and is made of iron and it has the iron backstrap. The grip of the sword has had the leather and wire restored and it displays superbly now. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard. The scabbard is complete with the mounts, rings, drag and throat intact. This is a cool looking ancient sword that displays beautifully.
