The 33 3/8 Sohlingen (Solingen, Prussia) made blade is overall good / sound for its age, some damage, etching still visible, still firm in the hilt. Hilt with missing/ broken section, but still very good overall. Original leather grip and twisted grip wire bindings still in place.

Not many of these around, to say the very least. Don't hang around, there may never be another one! Yours for £1500. Please quote item reference number AB96. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0139-1.18 (2.172).
