The 36 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt good overall with poinçons and troop / trooper stamp (K97) to the quillon finale. The leather grip overall good but with a small missing patch to the top. The twisted grip wire binding pretty much all gone.

A great sword at a good low price; £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AB16 (0119). Further / full sized images available upon request.
