The 33 inch blade is nicely etched and with only minimal wear / patina for its age. Marked to the ricasso, Gardiner & Co, 120 Queen Victoria Street, London E.C.", the blade is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt / guard has tarnish and light rusting (preserving oil duly applied) and should clean up very nicely if desired with a little time and effort. The fishskin grip is a little worn and aged, but still good and sound. The twisted grip wire bindings generally good but with some of the secondary strands missing. The sword sheaths and draws very well into its steel scabbard; this has a couple of kinks and a pleasant speckled patina.

A genuinely nice sword and very good value. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number E26 (783).
