Title Luftwaffe officer's sword, 1935 pattern, EPNS mounts
Nationality German
Period c 1935-40
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This sword (by Horster) is a Luftwaffe issue sword with a Luftwaffe ordnance stamp punched in above the maker's name in the form of an eagle above some letters. This signifies senior warrant officer use. Commissioned officers had to purchase their own weapons direct from a retailer outlet.

There is also a number (127) punched on the throat of the scabbard and the platform of the guard.

These swords were worn as parade items (but not with a portepee) and a cheaper aluminium version was introduced in the early 1940s. The use of the sword was discontinued in 1944.

The blade is 68.5cm long. The scabbard has a few bruises down at the bottom end and there are some abrasions here and there to the leather, but, over all, the leather is in excellent condition. The blue leather frog at the top of the scabbard is missing.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
