    J. E. Bleckmann Cavalry Saber with Confederate Wrapped Grip - Inventory Number: SWO 256

    This is a difficult-to-find Model 1860 enlisted man's cavalry saber by maker J. E. Bleckmann imported from Solingen, Prussia (Germany). The firm of J. E. Bleckmann was founded in Solingen in 1808 and continued in business until 1880. Their products were produced in small numbers but all were quality-made pieces. This slightly curved saber blade follows the characteristics of an Ames blade and measures 34½" long with a width of 1 1/16", and features a 27" long, wide fuller and a narrow fuller 18½" long. The ricasso exhibits the Bleckmann blade strike of 'bow and arrow' with "B" and "M" inside of the bow. The brass hilt retains its original leather washer and a domed pommel cap. The hilt is untouched and exhibits a mellow patina and no visible inspector marks.

    Sword grips exhibit the typical shallow groove, leather covered wood handle with twisted brass wire wrapped around the handle. The steel scabbard is bright with patches or more recent rust but no coarse pitting and is free of dents and dings. Drag has little wear but also has a slight rusting surface. The two ring mounts are tight and hold two 1 3/16" diameter sword rings. A nice specimen, this J. E. Bleckmann imported light cavalry saber.
