Sales enquiries

Blade spine reads "Manufre Imple de Châtellerault 8bre (October) 1846"; pre-1850 versions of this iconic sword have the magnificent pipeback blade with quill point.

The 93 cm (36 5/8 inch) blade is in good condition, some age and hilting marks to the forte, a tiny bit loose in the hilt (corrective measure is to push a metal shard / segment of Stanley type knife between the blade and hilt). The hilt / guard is mostly good. The leather grip with wear and some small show through's of under-twine, and a small patch missing on top. The twisted grip wire bindings are all but gone. No scabbard.

A scarce sword. Yours for £? (too late, now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference AB15 (0116). Further / full sized images available upon request.
