Sales enquiries

A rare plain bladed (except for etched Wilkinson logo) and steel only (not plated) hilted WW1 British infantry officer's sword; perhaps done to save a few shillings, perhaps done to have a no-nonsense fighting sword. The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition for its age, some scuffing, the forward lead edge having been sharpened and with some small nicks. Blade firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is in very good shape, no rust pitting evident. The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are also very good. The leather field service scabbard in good condition, the frog strap broken. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example of a quality sword made by the leading name in the industry. A great investment. Please quote item reference number G89 (979). Further / full sized images upon request.
