The superb 36 inch blade is in very good shape and firm in the hilt. The hilt retaining much original gilt. The grip complete and generally good, but three turns of twisted wire ring bindings have been glued, presumably they were coming loose; probably could be much improved with care. The steel scabbard is in very good order. The blade sheathes and draws very well. A very good buy at £350. Further / full sized photos available upon request.
