Sales enquiries

In very good condition overall, this is an extremely rare sword, most having been destroyed or left to corrode one way or another over the years, especially those with the Russian Imperial double headed eagle on it, as this one has. Dated 1915 and unit marked.

Please note: We 100% guarantee this sword is authentic, not one of the hundreds of aged reproductions normally sold over the Internet. Again, guaranteed 100% authentic.

The 32 inch blade is in very good condition, a few patina patches here and there, but not too much or many. The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt still with unit / regiment markings clear, the Zlatoust factory mark a little feint but still visible. The slotted wooden grips are in very good shape. The retaining nut apparently has never been removed. The original scabbard is in good order. The leather straps and remains of the knot are aged, but nice to have. The shaska sheathes and draws well. A well above average example. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number F12 (862)
