The 23 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, sharp, with a small nick to the cutting edge. Blade firm in hilt. The sheath / scabbard with feint Dutch regimental markings is aged and scuffed but good. This heiho sheathes and draws well.

A really nice example and conservation piece. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AD44 (0515). Further / large images available upon request.
