A Police Sword with Portepee by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co. consignment #4

A Police Sword with Portepee by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co. - Measuring 1,006 mm, with the scabbard on, this sword features an 850 mm long, nickel-plated steel blade, magnetic, fullered on both sides, with a blade spine and a single dull edge, remaining bright and crisp, and having an extremely sharp tip. The blade's obverse ricasso is maker marked "W K C" (Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co.) with the company's knight emblem above, while the reverse ricasso is marked with the SS runes. It retains its crossgraining, with light wear and exhibits scratching overall, common to extraction and return to the scabbard, natural shine, measuring 850 mm in length, better than very fine. Brown leather buffer pad at the blade's base, the face of which is dyed black, remains relatively supple and is intact. Handle consists of a D-shaped guard with quillon, a traditional built in step fitting, nickel-plated hilt fittings, magnetic, with most of the plating remaining intact, the ferrule with a six oak leaf design encompassing it. Black celluloid grip exhibits light contact with some chipping, along with missing its solid nickel wire that was once wound in the thirteen grooves of the grip. Finely-detailed aluminum Police insignia centred on the handle's obverse, complemented with a large period Police portapee wrapped around the crossguard and base of the blade in the appropriate fashion, the knot in aluminum wire with green felt on its recessed end, the attached cord in brown and black embroidery and interlaced with red threading and silver bullion wire, without interruption in the fabrics. The sword measures 983 mm in length and weighs 496 grams overall. The scabbard has a durable black painted metal body, magnetic, with flattened u-shaped finial and locket, suspension ring and bracket protruding from the wrap-around loop, nickel-plated ornate-designed fittings at the throat are held in place via single screws on either side, weighing 398 grams and measuring 26 mm x 867 mm, exhibiting paint loss and wear overall but is free of dents. A terrific WWII collectible, better than very fine. (C:4)
