Title Prussian navy cutlass
Nationality German
Period 1861
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This rare example, now with extensive 20th-century paint refinish to the hilt and scabbard mounts, is dated 1861 with Prussian inspection stamps and is maker-marked for Clemen & Jung of Solingen. This was the first pattern cutlass for the infant Prussian navy of the mid-19th century.

The blade, now heavily varnished, is in excellent shape. The bulk of the grip wire is missing. The scabbard has all its original issue stamps clearly visible in the leather and metalwork.

Just to let you know that the kukri arrived today safe and sound, many thanks for sending it so quickly. I'm more than pleased with this kukri, I'm so glad I spotted it on your website as I don't think I've ever seen another one like it for sale anywhere.

Once again many thanks and I hope to do business with you again in the future.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
