Early Luftwaffe Officer Sword [M1935] by E.&F. Hörster Solingen

This early Luftwaffe Sword is uncleaned, and as a result the solid nickel mounts do show quite a bit of patination. Model 1935. The total length is 97.9 cm. The Sword has the maker mark on the blade E.&F. Hörster Solingen.

Grip: The grip is a carved wood base, and is covered with a fine blue Moroccan leather. The grip is tightly wrapped with springy copper wire. The pommel is an excellent example, having no hits to the rim edges. The rim is stamped with a fine decoration of connected oak leaves and acorns, and it has the medallion insert style sun-wheel swastika. The crossguard has the same medallion inserts. The guard is the three section variety, which slopes downward and bears good, enhanced feathering.

Blade: The blade of this piece is a real beauty, being in stone Mint condition, with highest quality nickel-plated surfaces. It is marked on the reverse ricasso, “E.&F. Hörster Solingen”. Above the trademark is a waffenamt, consisting of a stickbird with a number “5” visible in his belly. The original blue leather blade washer is in place, in good condition and showing only minor wear.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell of this piece is straight throughout, and is also covered in Moroccan leather. The obverse of this scabbard is in fairly good condition, showing no scuffs to the leather, while the reverse, despite some age and signs of wear, is in a decent state. The scabbard mounts are the matching nickel-silver types, in good condition. They are retained by headless side screws.
