889 Pattern Victorian British Infantry Staff Sergeants' Sword

Sales enquiries

This is quite a rare sword, especially in such good condition, a Victorian British infantry staff sergeant's sword. Made by Mole of Birmingham, accepted by the War Department in February 1996, this sword was still in service after Queen Victoria's death in 1905, as the marks to the blade and scabbard testify.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, still fairly sharp on both edges to the point (period sharpened), firm in the hilt. The hilt is also in very good order, the brass guard and fishskin grip with little wear or damage, the twisted grip wire bindings still present and correct. The typical heavy steel scabbard is in very good condition; the sword sheathes and draws very well. A well above average example of an impressive and heavy sword.
