Senior Foresters Cutlass by WKC Solingen

This Senior Foresters Cutlass by WKC is in EXC+ condition throughout. The total length is 44.3 cm. The Cutlass has the maker mark on the blade: WKC Solingen.

Grip: The grip plates on this cutlass are of fine stag antler. This antler is a dark coffee color speckled with lighter color grains. The areas where the grips were trimmed have turned to a golden tone. Both plates have three applied acorns on each side. These acorns are the type that have caps and leaves on the top. This very substantial Forestry Cutlass is of all fine quality brass construction. The “D” guard is basically plain but for a lined border. Both ends of this guard terminate in stylized deer hooves. The fur on these hooves has good hand-enhanced detailing. The ferrule has a series of similar line decorations.

Blade: The slab sided blade of this cutlass is 30 cm in length. This blade is a beauty, being in EXC+ condition and having triple etching. The obverse etch depicts the familiar hunter, outfitted with a rifle and a cutlass, running after a wild boar which is being harried by his hunting dogs. Next we see a game bird flying around a spray of oak leaves. This etch could not be any better, having beautiful frosted backgrounds. The reverse etch is in the same fine condition; it depicts a kneeling hunter taking aim with his rifle at a stag and doe who are leaping over a log. The etch ends with another game bird who sits chirping on a branch of oak leaves. The spine of the blade is etched with more oak leaves. The obverse ricasso of the blade is deeply stamped with the Knight Head trademark of the WKC firm, and the original brown leather blade washer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is of black leather which shows little age. The leather is sewn up the rear and is decorated with twin accent lines that run down the edges of both sides. The matching brass scabbard mounts are relatively plain except for scalloped edges where they meet the shell. The upper mount is equipped with a fine lug in the shape of an acorn with a detailed cap. The lower mount is decorated with twin lines. These mounts are retained by staples in the usual fashion, and there is a matching number that can be seen beneath both of them.
