WW1 British Army Corps Officers Sword, Named
In very good condition, WW1 British Army Corps Officers Sword,
H. K. Clayden.
A Fenton Brothers of Sheffield made sword, etched to the blade
and marked to the scabbard "H. K. Clayden". The only information
we can find on him is that he served and survived WW1 within the
British Army Service Corps.
The 32 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition, the etching for
the maker is rubbed, blade firm in the hilt. The hilt generally
good, a little distortion, hardly noticeable. The grip and twisted
grip wire are both good. The leather field service scabbard also
very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Quite a scarce sword, and this one has both provenance and is well
above average. A great buy at just £? (too late, now sold).
