The W. H. Horstmann company had a strong association with the  Gebruder Weyersberg family of Solingen Germany. They were a renowned sword and blade making family for generations. They appear to have started blade making before the turn of the 15th century. Most Horstmann swords carry the Weyersberg king's Head mark. This head is the only mark found on this sword. The hilt is cast with the fish scale design. It shows extensive buffing and polishing along the seam line indicating this hilt was likely two separate slabs that were combined. There are no rivets through the grip only a top peen to hold the blade in place. The fullers are more narrow on the Horstmann Weyersberg swords than that found on Ames swords. The two small fullers measure 4.2 inches in length and .35 inch wide. The lower long fuller is 10.5 inches long and 4.55 wide. The leather scabbard has a copper riveted face and a belt loop on the reverse. It is stamped with a large G.G. (naval Inspector) and an oval Navy Yard / N. Y. ? 1861. This is a scabbard produced to make use of swords in storage for the civil war. This scabbard was made for the navy to fit the Artillery short swords. A M1832 Navy Cutlass has a blade too long to be accommodated by this scabbard.  [ph:L]
