1881M Imperial Russian Dragoon Shashka &
In worn and aged condition, a guaranteed authentic 1881 model
This shaska has seen a long service life; just look at the wear
to the grip, the brass hilt now black, the various markings (including
an earlier Zlatoust maker mark) worn.
The 33 5/16 inch period sharpened blade is aged but in good condition,
the various stamps worn but still visible, the blade firm in the
hilt. The blackened brass hilt / guard is mostly good, some slight
bending, not too much. The original scabbard in very aged condition.
The sword sheathes and draws well.
A collector's dream, and just £? (too late, now sold). Please
quote item reference number AC36 (0266). Further / large images
available upon request.
