Pristine ERII Wilkinson Sword General Officer's Mameluke Sabre

Sales enquiries

I absolutely guarantee this is an authentic Wilkinson Sword ERII British general's mameluke, complete with sword knot and belts. Serial number on the blade's spine is 122502 for 1992, together with NATO item number WS (broad arrow) 91136-7276; this sabre was once the property of HM Armed Forces. The sword is in near new condition and is 100% suitable for official dress wear by a serving general. The belts and sword knot need cleaning, but I am sure they could be dry cleaned, etc.

I have absolutely no idea why this fine sabre was decommissioned, but it was. I really do not expect to ever come across another on the market; truly, this is a one off and now Wilkinson Sword (the sword people) are no more, buy it while you can as you are never likely to get the chance at one of these ever again.

The 31 1/2 inch blade is finely etched and as new. The ivorine grip is in very good order and the small studs all present; the gilt finish is still fine and bright. The blade is firm in the hilt and sheathes / draws very well as you would expect. The steel scabbard is in very good condition, though would stand some careful cleaning to make "new" again. The blade has a blank panel so an inscription could be made to it. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number 806 (342).
