1950's Communist Chinese Army Sabre / Sword,
In good condition, an authentic 1950's Communist Chinese Army
We guarantee this is an authentic 1950's Communist Chinese Army
Sabre, not one of the modern reproductions (sad but true, Chinese
fakers now even fake these). You can tell by the leather thumb loop
inside the guard; this one has lost the main leather section, but
you can still see the retainer and root inside the guard.
79cm blade is in very good condition, some wear (scuffing / scratching)
but not much, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt also good, as is
the grip. Scabbard very good though paint loss. The sword sheathes
and draws well. Matching serial numbers to blade and scabbard (219914).
Nice sword for only £225. Please quote item number K69 (1193).
