M1797 Dragonpallask

The M1797  is a M1785 grip mounted on a M1789 blade, making a highly decor-able pallask within a sensible weight limitation. The M1885 was a bit on the heavy side, the M1789 was not all that exiting and the M1773 was way to heavy. Here is a wonderful grip on an “easy to make” blade… But, it really never was a great success.  They also tried the M1789 grip on the M1785 blade – another Danish failure.
