Sales enquiries

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). Please quote item reference AD06 (0404). Further / full sized images available upon request.
