British ERII Infantry Officer's Wilkinson Sword

Sales enquiries

With a little use of a quality metal finisher such as Simichrome, I believe this sword would be as new. I bought the sword from Germany; the name engraved to the tablet section of the blade is "Claus Oppelt" who I understand was never in any army but simply decided to buy a Wilkinson Sword from the manufacturer. If you find a quality engraver, they should be able to engrave a pattern over his name if desired. Certainly, this sword would make a superb present for a serving officer.

32 1/4 Inch blade in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some slight age staining, but very little on the front. The grip in very good condition. The plated steel scabbard in very good condition but with some age staining. Again, the hilt / guard and scabbard would possibly if not probably look like new with some TLC and a little quality metal cleaning polish. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A lovely sword and I doubt I will own it for long! Yours for the amazingly low price of just £xxx (too late, now sold - original sales price revealed for small fee). Please quote item reference number AA52 (0039(. Further / full sized images upon request.
