Hi

Does anyone know anything about Swiss or maybe French sabres around 1880?

My mate moved to Switzerland some years ago and his daughter bought him a sabre from flea market?

Its not Important, just something I'm looking into for him.

Hi Frank,

I did wonder myself but couldn't see where the corkscrew, compass, scissors, pliers, socket set, medi kit and portable welder were hidden.....

Cheers
