Product Code: 1855L

Solingen made, between 1858 and 1870 by F Horster. (In 1870 they merged and changed logo.)
Solingen inspection stamps, also one Birmingham.
Spring works perfectly.
Blade exceptionally clean and very straight, though it may have had a kink/twist at some point in the most unlikely of directions. A colleague suggested repaired explosion damage. It looks perfect other than from directly above. 23.5".
Other markings include what looks like "4 1 S (or possibly £ rather than S) on pommel.
On sharp edge at ricasso there appears roman numeral XIII then a 3 over 8. Quite odd.
Pictures form a decent description.
