The 35 inch blade is in very good condition, some patina but not too much, and the etching very crisp. The blade of course is rigid in the hilt, 100% firm as you would expect from a Patent Solid Hilt by Wilkinsons. The steel hilt has suffered rusting, but is very sound and would clean up if required. The grip and ring bindings are in very good shape. The leather field service scabbard is good but the drag / shoe is in poor order. The blade sheathes and draws well. A rare chance to acquire one of these prized swords. Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number B23 (452).
