World War 1 British Royal Navy / Naval Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

This is almost certainly a later World War One sword (1917/18) token of the fact there is no maker's or retailer's mark to the blade's ricasso. Probably sold through an outfitter at a time when attention to such detail was second place to speed of delivering officers to the war effort.

The very well etched 31 1/2 inch blade has some tiny patina spots and scuff marks (from drawing and sheathing the sword), but not much; the blade is in very good condition. Equally the hilt and fishskin grip along with the twisted grip wire bindings are all in well above average condition. The original sword knot is good but worn and has lost its tiny hook ring. The leather and brass fittings scabbard is good, the leather with wear and scuffing, some staining to the fittings. The sword sheathes and draws very well and the locking pin / folding guard section are all good.

Again, a well above average example and probably under-priced. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D38 (711).
