THIS IS A GOOD STORY ON THE HISTORY OF THESE LANCES!
These lances were made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum for the German Uhlans prior to WWI. They were later exported to Argentina, which was a great cavalry nation. In the 1950’s Argentina finally realized that cavalry doesn’t work against machines guns. Enter Sam Cummings, of Interarms Fame, the largest surplus dealer ever. He bought hundreds of these & brought them to the U.S. Sam had a great relationship with the Sudan & they told Sam that they needed lances for their camel corps, and none were to be found in the world. Eureka, Sam had proper German made lances for them. Sam sent 140 lances to Khartoum as a gift to his friends. Perhaps they are still in use. The last successful cavalry charge in the world in history was at the battle of Omdurman outside of Khartoum. Winston Churchill took part in the battle. Sam kept the rest of the lances to someday decorate the entrance hall of Interarms, each one bearing the flag of a nation that he had done business with. Unfortunately, this never was accomplished, & Sarco acquired these when we purchased all the remaining inventory when Interarms closed.
FABULOUS ORIGINAL GERMAN UHLAN 19TH CENTURY (1800s) CAVALRY LANCES
What a piece of history! Go back to the past years of the 19th century to the days of Kaiser Wilhelm and the Second Reich. Now blend the word “Uhlan” with the magic name of “Weyersberg-Kirschbaum” and you have a classic Imperial German era cavalry lance made by the fabled Weyersberg-Kirschbaum military edged weapon manufacturer of Solingen. This is one of the most famous names in German military cutlery making. These lances were produced in the 1890’s and lost in history until about 30 years ago when they were bought by the fabled international arms firm “Interarms” owned by Sam Cummings. Here again, they got lost for another 30 years until SARCO uncovered them in a buying spree at Interarms.
