The 32 1/4 inch fullered blade with earlier clipped point is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The plain brass hilt (these were never gilted on the sergeant's swords) is in good shape, only minimal distortion (brass hilts suffer damage easily), the fishskin grip very good, as are the twisted grip wore bindings, though a couple of turns of the lesser strands are gone. The brass and leather scabbard is in very good condition for its age and type, though aged and worn. The sword sheathes and draws well.

If only swords could talk. A lovely well above average example of a scarce sword, yours for only £? (too late, now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference number AA31 (0027).
