Bavarian Cavalry Degen M1889 - WKC Solingen

This Bavarian Cavalry Degen has a narrow, delicate blade and is quite a lightweight weapon. The Degen has the maker mark on the blade: WKC Solingen.

Grip: The grip of the sword is the traditional black Bakelite, with ribs, and having no wire wrap. The nickel is in fine condition throughout this hilt. The hilt is in the traditional Model '89 Cavalry design. It is of all nickel, and has a stationary basket featuring a Bavarian lion standing on is hind legs, holding a sword in one paw and the checkered seal of Bavaria in the other. The basket is all pierced. The original portepee remains wrapped about the hilt of this degen. It is of gold bullion with dual lines on the straps. The inside of the strapping is of white felt which remains in excellent condition. The troddel shows minor traces of fraying at the area that emerges from the knot. The lower stem is the flat type, and the acorn shaped ball is of gold bullion.

Blade: The blade is a most impressive example. It is one of the larger proportioned blades and it measures XX cm in length. This degen blade has fine nickel plated surfaces throughout and remains in near full mint condition. The first half of the blade is etched. The obverse has a most beautiful panel. In the center the name and location of the regiment is raised out and nickel plated with a choice background. It reads "1. Bayr. Ulan. Rgt. Kaiser Wilhelm II".

Scabbard: The scabbard is also in near mint condition, being a nickel-plated example. The nickel is still just about new, being extremely bright, and the surfaces are dent-free. The scabbard has two carrying rings.
