1897 Pattern Edward 7th British Infantry
Officer's Sword (sold)
In near mint condition, an 1897P Edward VII British infantry officer's
sword, scabbard and sword knot.
It is rare to find an antique sword like this in such very good
condition. Apart from the aging to the scabbard, this sword could
be cleaned to be mint, that is how good it is. The superb grey etched
33 inch blade has no flaws on it and is firm in the hilt. The hilt
gleams, a little more polishing and you would not be able to tell
it from new. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are
superb. The original sword knot is in very good condition. The leather
field scabbard is the only thing showing any real age. I doubt it
is possible to find an Edward 7th sword like this in such good condition.
This sword will blow any collector away and as such is worth every
penny. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. The
item reference number is 986.
