WW1 / George V British Royal Navy Midshipman's
In good condition, a WW1 / George V British Royal Navy Midshipman's
Dirk by Gieves.
A scarce item in that if bears a GRV cypher (not just a British
Royal Coat of Arms). Etched to "Gieves" on the ricasso,
so it was actually made by Wilkinson Sword.
The 17 1/2 inch blade is in good condition but with some wear and
several patina / rust spots. Blade firm in the hilt. The grip generally
very good but with age / wear. The sword knot is good, some slight
fraying. The leather and gilt metal fittings scabbard is generally
good. The dirk sheathes and draws very well.
What a lovely item, especially so with its original know. Well
priced at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
AC67 (0335). Further / full sized images available upon request.
