Wilkinson ERII British Royal Naval Officer's Swordimage 785 2

Sold Item Notice

In my book, a near new British Wilkinson made sword is better anyday than a new one from India, Germany or anywhere else. So, if you are looking at this thinking is this a better bet for a serving British / Australian / Canadian / New Zealand naval officer than something new and foreign, the answer is 100% yes. Not only will the sword be more interesting to fellow officers, but it will also prove to be a much better long term investment.

Serial number 124213 for 1994, the sword is in excellent condition. The grip a little (and I mean a little) grubby from previous use, the odd slight rubbing mark here and there, a few (and I mean a few) tiny scuff marks, the sword knot a little weak near the joint (I am sure this can be fairly easily fixed) plus one small strand of fabric astray, the all weather bag needs some stiching one side near the end, otherwise exceptional.

The 31 inch blade is in very good order to say the least; far superior in my honest opinion to anything made today. The gilt very good and bright, as new even. Some tender care with black shoe polish would, I am sure, hide the few scabbard scuffs there are. The scabbard pin locks perfectly into place with the folding hilt section. The crimson lined all weather bag is nice. Belts in good order. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Item Ref: 785 (322).
