British Royal Navy Master at Arms Sword

Sales enquiries

The black gripped, plain bladed version of the Royal Navy officer's sword, for a Master at Arms. There is no maker's name to this sword, but it is of the very best quality, Wilkinson standard, and in such good condition, it would be a perfect choice for a serving officer.

The 31 1/4 inch plain blade is in very good condition, some very light markings from previous use, but nothing to worry about. The hilt retains its gilt and is generally in very good condition, as is the black fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings; some slight movement in one of the smaller strands of the later, but so very slight. The leather and gilt metal scabbard in good condition. The folding guard works well and locates properly onto the retaining pin of the top scabbard locket. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A very high quality sword. Please quote item reference K38 (1167). Further / full sized images available upon request.
