This is a more classic example of a Kinder Sword as it is a good bit smaller (and would have consequently belonged to a younger boy). It measures about 27″ in length and has a dulled point to prevent injury to overly enthusiastic youngsters while playing. It features a basket guard and comes from a young noblemen from Braunschweig. The grip is sharkskin-wrapped, which in turn is gilt wire wrapped. The scabbard is nickel-plated and has two scabbard loops. The blade is quite elaborate for a Kinder Sword and is double engraved and personalized with the name Wilhelm Nafs. Perhaps some research will allow the new owner to find out what became of this young nobleman.
A very nice sword that is as high quality as I have seen in Kinder Swords. Very attractive–would be nice contrast in a sword collection.
