1950's Communist Chinese Army Sabre

Sales enquiries

This has to be the most ironic sabre in history; a) the Chinese modeled it on the 18895 model Japanese cavalry officer's sabre, which was used as a Japanese police sabre in WW2, and b) there are tons of this model of sword available on the market from China, but they are all reproductions; we have never seen / heard anything so funny regarding swords, the Chinese do not even sell authentic examples of their own swords! Anyway, modern reproductions aside, this is actually a scarce and attractive sabre.

The 31 inch blade with serial number is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The painted steel hilt and plastic grip are equally good, though worn. The bicolour scabbard is in good shape, a little aged and worn. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Please quote item reference number I06 (1059). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
