In 1729, Colonel Christop von Unruh established a Janissary corps, which was mainly composed of Poles and Hungarians. By 1731 it had already been dissolved to be amalgamated into the newly-established grenadier battalion. Cf. Kalus Hilbert, "Trag' diese Wehr zu Sachsens Ehr" (tr. Carry this weapon in Saxony's honour). Dresden. 1994. No. 4.)
Editor's Postscript: Note the similarity between this blade form and the single edged Viking Sword blade form which preceeded it by approximately one thousand years.
