edged weapons


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Enfield cutlass bayonet, model 1859, 2nd pattern
- British (German make - American contract)
This was introduced in 1859 for the Royal Navy to supply a need for a cutlass and a bayonet in one weapon for the naval rifle of the era, a .577 Enfield cap and ball weapon. This is an A & E Holler example - ie a Solingen blade. There are no UK ordnance marks, so this is almost certainly an American export item.

militaria item US dragoon officer's sword, 1831 model
- American
This is one of the rarest of the post-1812 War cavalry swords. The Federal army was microscopic at this time, perhaps only 30,000 strong, the numbers only gearing up for the Mexican War of 1848. The design is a direct copy of the British light cavalry sabre of the same era.

militaria item Prison Service officer's sword by WKC
- German
This is a marked (WKC) Weyersberg & Kirschbaum production from Solingen, which unusually has a solid bronze hilt, rare for the era, as most of these swords had aluminium hilts (gilt for the prison service and a silver finish for the justice administration officials). In 50 years of trading this is the first bronze hilt I have seen.

militaria item Whitworth bayonet marked for 2nd/60th
- British
This is the bayonet for the .451 muzzle-loading Whitworth rifle. In extensive trials these were issued in 1863-67 to infantry units, including various guards and rifle regiments. Some 8,000 bayonets were produced, the general scale of issue being some 68 rifles and bayonets per regiment. The 2nd Battalion 60th were in the Maori Wars 1860-70.

militaria item KS98 issue bayonet with DOA markings
- German
This rare bayonet was issued to the German troops in German East Africa and is marked DOA on the cross guard. Only some 11,000 men of these troops at one point kept 50,000 British and Indian men at bay. Von Lettow Vorbeck surrendered six weeks after the armistice on the Western Front and, by his own account, could have gone on fighting for ever.
