Sales enquiries

In exceptional condition, the 1821P is one of the most attractive swords / sabres of the British army in my opinion anyway, so this item is a superb show piece, and it is very rare to get this pattern in such good condition.

Hawkes were known as a quality maker and it shows in this sabre. The lovely 35 inch blade is well etched, with nothing more than the tiniest of rust spots which can hardly be seen, and is firm in the hilt. Equally, the steel hilt is in very good order. The fishskin grip is good and the twisted grip wire bindings are all present and correct. The sword sheathes very well into its leather field scabbard which is also in good order. A very fine example. Further / large images available upon request. My item reference number 810 (338).
