Hello,

Based on Christian Ortner and Erich Artlieb gorgeous book "With Drawn Sword - Austro-Hungarian Edged Weapons 1848-1918", this seems to be an Infantry troop's saber 1851 model. (also called 18363-1851 model)

The total length of the example they presented is 823mm and its weight 958 g

As far as the GF is concerned, I cannot find any certain reference, but they mention Fischer as a firm which created many sabers for the army.

They were used by Line infantry, Grenadiers, Fusiliers, Grenz-infanterie, reserve, etc ...

I heartily recommend the book ;-)

Regards,

Benoit
