Sales enquiries

A good example of a British WW1 infantry sword with nice and highly prized grey etching. Made by Fenton Brothers Ltd. Sheffield, Sword Cutlers to the War Office.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in good condition with some patina spots as to be expected, and is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is in excellent condition for the age of sword, patina patches to most of the blade but no pitting, and is firm in the hilt. The grip is equally in very good order, the fish skin and twisted grip wire in great shape. The original leather sword knot is complete, but one section is broken, and the entire knot aged, but a welcome bonus. The leather field service scabbard is good, some wear. The sword sheathes and draws well. Please quote reference number B86 (577). Full sized / further images available upon request.
