WW1 / George 5th British Royal Artillery Officer's Sword, Hawksworth Sheffieldimage C57 1

Sold Item Notice

For us this sword stands heads above other WW1 era swords because of the fine and slightly bespoke etching to the blade; the sword stands out for its quality during a time when quantity too often took precedence over quality.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is nicely grey etched, the style quite unique from other swords of the period, definitely more stylish. The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt's main bar has a little ding to it, probably period, nothing that detracts much if at all (we only just noticed it). The fishskin grip is in very good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The field leather scabbard a little aged by still good, the sword sheathes and draws well. Includes original sword knot. A very nice sword indeed. Further / large images available upon request. Please quote item reference number C57 (636).
