WW1 British Infantry Officer's Sword, Army & Navy Stores

Sales enquiries

This is a very good and well above average 1897 pattern George 5th British infantry officer's sword with steel hilt. The hilt and use of the so called "dumb bell" blade says this is a WW1 sword.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is well etched and in very good condition, plus firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is very good too, the fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings very good, though the original black patterning has mostly worn away as should be expected (can be "restored" with shiny black liquid shoe polish, though we would leave as is). Complete with original steel scabbard, also in very good shape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example. Please quote item reference F76 (910). Further / full sized images available upon request.
