Early Luftwaffe Officer Sword [M1935] by David Malsch Steinbach

This early Luftwaffe Sword [Air Force] has never been cleaned, and as a result the solid nickel mounts do show quite a bit of patination. Model 1935. The total length is 92.0 cm. The Sword has rare maker mark on the blade David Malsch Steinbach.


Grip: The grip is a carved wood base, and is covered with a fine blue Moroccan leather. This leather shows quite a bit of usage with some scuff here and there, but be covered in with Meltonian leather cream and it cleaned up quite nicely. 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 72,3 cm example. It is a real beauty, being in stone Mint condition, with highest quality nickel-plated surfaces. It is marked on the reverse ricasso, “David Malsch, Steinbach”. Above the trademark is a waffenamt, consisting of a stickbird with a number “8” visible in his belly. The original blue leather blade washer is in place, in good condition.

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. The original crescent hanger is in place, in good condition and equipped with a matching nickel-silver box clip.
