George V British Royal Navy Midshipman's
In very good condition, a post WW1 George V British Royal Naval
midshipman officer's dirk.
The etching and the grip with no royal cypher (only a British
royal coat of arms / pre-Edward 8th) indicates this is a post WW1,
circa 1930, RN officer's dirk. The etching is particularly good.
The 18 1/8 inch blade is well etched and in very good condition,
plus firm in the hilt. The hilt generally very good, the faux fishskin
grip and twisted grip wire bindings also both very good. The strong
locking mechanism of the scabbard works well. The scabbard itself
with obvious age. The dirk sheathes and draws well.
What a lovely example and only £xxx (too late, now sold -
