It was of interest to me, thanks. Seeing the french sword with the german blade made me remember that there is a swedish saber m/1859 that can some times found with damascus steel blades. Those blades often marked Eisenhauer, Damaststahl. While looking for such a sword I found somthing interesting on this link:

https://digitaltmuseum.se/011024401198/sabel-m-1859

The sword in this link actually has the marks in swedish. It says "Jernhuggare" and "StŚl Damast". The literal translaten of "jernhuggare" to english is "iron cutter. The blade is made in germany, so at somepoint someone had to translate the meaning of Eisenhauer to swedish. It has the swedish king Carl XVs monogram and he was king between 1859 and 1872, so the sword would be from between those years.
