In the cutlery craft about twenty-five skilled specialists were required to provide quality from the sword blade to the scabbard. The craftsmen included the Schmeid or smith, the Reider who put the blade and hilt together, the Heifter who makes the blades, the Herten who tempers the steel, the Wheter who grinds and sharpens the blade, and others including the last craftsmen the Schwertfeger, Schwertschleifer and Damaszierer.
So Schwertfeger meaning furbisher would seem reasonable and fitting in this line of craftsmen.
