Default Dutch Naval Swords

Here are a couple of rare interesting pieces of History, a pair of Dutch Naval swords I currently have and I thought I'd use these whilst I have them in my posession as a learning tool for us all.
Both I beleive date from the 1870's, have wire bound ivory handles with pipeback blades and etchings to these blades, they do vary slightly in length and are complete with scabbards. The images can tell you more about the item than my fingers at this hour of the evening.
