Sales enquiries

In pretty good condition overall, this Wilkinson made British infantry officers sword was made / finished on the 23rd June 1921 for a Col Slobart, with the initials "G K S" to the blade, there is certainly some research potential here.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, some aging, not much, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt with some plating loss and a little light rusting, otherwise very good. The fishskin grip has lost a little of its colour, but is in good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The field leather scabbard is also very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Please quote item reference number F72 (913). Further / full sized images available upon request.
