Sold Item Notice

JJ Runkel blades were believed to be the finest by British army officers in the early Georgian era; this one is a good example why. The sword is a loose pattern for a grenadier officer, as they were at the time; this one with a single spiral bar guard.

The 31 inch blade retains some blue and gilt etching, is overall in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is very solid both in terms of its construction and condition. The black fishskin grip is ion very good shape, the silver metal twisted grip wire bindings are good but the smaller strands are a little loose / wayward in sections.

In any event, this is a well above average example of a particularly rare sword and well worth the £xxx price tag (too late, now sold - we will divulge the original sales price however for a small fee). Please quote item reference G83 (969). Further / full sized images available upon request.
