The34 inch blade is very aged yet still exceptionally strong and in very good shape for its age. The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt with some period damage, as should be expected. The leather grip is a later replacement, the twisted grip wire bindings may be original (replaced after regripping).

In any event, try and find another and then you will know that our price represents a very good investment opportunity indeed, not to mention the chance of owning and holding such a rare old backsword. Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference F27 (T18).
