The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The plated hilt is a little cloudy (a good metal polish would restore to the original shine) and has a couple of minor scratches, but very good. Faux fishskin grip very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. Plated steel scabbard in very good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A really unusual and rare sword. A great buy for just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AE47 (0866). Further / full sized images available upon request.
