Composite weapon - the guard is from a M1868 Austrian cavalry saber, the blade has not been fully identified yet but the marking is either Danish or Saxon, circa late 1700's. A wonderfully long and tempered blade, thick back spine tapering down to a 11" false edge. No chips, no nicks, the blade is pristine. Contemporary wood scabbard with antique fittings, covered in cobra snake skin for a truly exotic touch. This sword would make any Hussar or cavalry officer proud.
