The 32 1/4 inch blade is in exceptionally good condition; the etching clear, some slight scuffing near the top of each tablet from where the blade has been sheathed and drawn as to be expected. The blade tip area is still sharp, the blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt retains some gilt, the folding guard has a little dent in it but is otherwise good and works as it should, the fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings in very good condition. The brass scabbard (for a senior officer) is in good condition, some small dings but not many. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A superb investment at only £600. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote reference number D17 (706).
