1895 Pattern Grey Etched British Infantry Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

In overall good condition, the 1895P is the rarer predecessor to the 1897P that remains the current model to this day. This example has the exceptionally nice grey etching to the blade.

There is no maker's mark to the blade but only a few of the very best blade makers could have produced this 32 1/2 inch blade. The blade sheathes and draws very well and is firm in the hilt. The front of the hilt is good to very good, a small rust patch to one edge. The inside of the hilt is speckled with rust, which I have duly treated. The fishskin and twisted grip wire bindings are all there and in good general order. The plated steel scabbard is nice and bright except for a rust patch further down one side and a ding the other. A great sword for £? (too late, now sold), truly. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number B16 (450)
