Hi guys,

Im a silent reader at myArmoury.com for almost 2 years now, but this is my first post and first topic to start.

A short while ago I bought the remains of a prussian M52 cavalry sabre. The blade has broken a while ago, leaving about 3/4 of the original length and somebody gave it a rather unimpressive new tip. The steel, on the other way, is wonderful, I think it is not fair just to keep it unfurnished somewhere in ones flat Wink

Now I would like to give it a new fitting, maybe reshaping it a bit, but somewhat lack ideas. Since my main time of interest it the late 15th cent. (yes, Im also in living hisrory), I do not have a very broad knowledge of short bladed, single edged weapons of the lets say 1650ies up to the 1850ies.

So maybe you have some ideas, what to do with it. At the end, the weapon should be usabel - but will not be used, maybe just for light cutting tests, not more.

Here the measures:

total length incl. tang: 78,5cm, blade length 64,5cm, blade width 2,8cm at the tang and 2 cm at the tip.

Here is a picture of it, nest to the blade you can see the original guard. Im now hunting for a complete M52, Its simply stunning.



Any suggestions? Im open to mostly everything, just as long as its historically provable.

Cheers,

You could simply mount it as a cutlass. They came in such a range of variations, you could pretty much use your imagination.

I rahter thought of a kind of civillian (?) hanger or hunting knife/ sowrd. In my opinion, the blade is to thin and to light for a cutlass.
