ERII British Naval Officer's Sword, Scabbard, Knot, Belts, All Weather Bag, Wilkinsons

Sales enquiries

In good enough condition to pretty much be used officially by a serving RN officer in our opinion; perhaps some cleaning / maintenance work required but, as can be seen, the hilt's gilt and grip are particularly good. Wilkinson sword made, serial number 98039 for 1970. The sword comes with original knot, scabbard, all weather cover / bag, belt and straps (see also images below).

The 31 inch blade is in very good condition, some scuffing, not too much, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt generally is very good, the white fishskin grip with some soiling but should be fairly easily cleaned if required; the twisted grip wire bindings are all present and correct. The folding guard works well and locates onto the scabbard's associated securing pin. The scabbard is a little aged, one of the interior liners is astray but present, the sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely. The sword knot is generally good. The all weather bag a little aged, a small slit in the hood section, not too noticeable. The belt is in good order though somewhat aged. Generally though, a very good example and quite possibly could be used by a serving officer.

Our price for this fine sword is (hidden); grab it quick as Wilkinson Swords in this condition are highly prized; too late, now sold! Please ask for item reference F28. 861. Further / full sized images available upon request.
