WW2 / George VI British Royal Navy Officer's
In very good condition, a WW2 / George VI British Royal Navy Officer's
No retailer's name is etched to the blade, so this sword is likely
to have been made during or leading up to World War Two.
The 31 1/8 inch blade is in very good condition, the grey etch
still clear (some marks / tiny patina patches) and firm in the hilt.
The white fishskin grip a little grubby, a small crack, but overall
very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings (some minor strands
a little astray but really not much). The folding guard section
works well and locates on the retaining pin of the scabbard. The
leather and gilt metal fittings scabbard overall good. The sword
knot good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A very nice WW2 example (shame we do not know the officer's name
that once owned it); if only swords could talk. Yours for £?
(too late, now sold, though we will divulge the original sales price
for a small fee). Please quote item reference AB11 (0105). Further
