Notes

The maker as given on the blade ('BRACH') does not appear to match any particular maker or family of makers in Solingen. However there is a dynasty of makers named 'BROCH' including one Clemens Broch (active 1718-1772). See Bezdek RH, German Swords and Sword Makers: Edged Weapon Makers from the 14th to the 20th Centuries, Boulder, Colorado, 2000, p.34-5: and also Schlesinger E, Solingen Handwerkszeichen, Duisburg, 1978.
