WW1 / George V Sheffield Made British 1905P
Sergeant's Sword, sold
In very good overall condition, a scarce WW1 / King George V British
infantry sergeant's sword.
A plain hilted sergeant's version of the 1897P officer's infantry
sword, these 1905P sergeant's swords are actually much scarcer,
especially when in good condition like this one. Made by Fenton
Brothers (cutlers to the War Office) in sheffield.
The 32 3/4 inch plain blade (except for Fenton Brothers logo) is
in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is a
little tarnished, but in a nice aged way, and in very good condition.
The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are
also very good. The leather and plated steel fittings scabbard in
very good order. The sword sheathes and draws well. A well, well
above average example of a scarce sword for only £400. Please
