This perfectly scaled Kinder version of the WKC pattern Nr. 1 Prussian Infantry Officer-Degen was recently purchased in Germany. Brass hilt fittings show surface wear and age patina to plain pommel cap and basket-style handguard with Imperial eagle and royal cypher of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Gray/black sharkskin grip shows surface wear with one small area of missing sharkskin covering on lower reverse adjacent to ferrule. Grip is complete with tight triple twisted wire wrap and with rare silver Garde Star pinned to the obverse. Polished matte-finished double-etched blade grades excellent, showing surface wear/dark aging, but with no pitting or nicks. Is complete with original red felt blade buffer pad. Faintly-etched panels feature a floral motif and military equipment on both obverse and reverse. Dent-free scabbard retains approximately 45% of its original black enamel, showing wear and crazing to both obverse and reverse. Nice maker-marked Kinder Sabel with rare Garde Star. EX (20435)
