The implementation of the rings does seem to be the last decade(s) of the 18th century into the 19th but in general, to me it seems just an extra. That we saw the castings with ample space to drill...

Sword knots were mentioned as required gear, even on foot, in some manuals throughout the 19th century.

I mention knots not necessarily naval, as it becomes a descriptive. I had carried it for a...

Right. The Werth and Weyersburg marks definitely had 19th century use and my speculation from the start was that the object sword is a precursor to the 20th century items. There shouldn't be an...

Looks like an earlier version of the Argentine 1909 machete hanger. The 1909 has more of a long bolo look and less hook to the pommel. Some of the brothers Weyersburg of Solingen used to use the...
