Sales enquiries

The blade especially on this sword is in very good condition. This sword could be improved with a little TLC, but also refurbishing / replating the hilt / guard and scabbard to produce a near new sword (the blade and grip being the areas that need to be very good already, and these are). The small amount of plating loss to the hilt and scabbard can be fairly easily disguised if full refurbishment is not desired. Again, this to make the sword one of the very best examples you will find.

The impressive 35 1/8 inch blade has some small rust spots that can only be seen on close inspection; we have stabilized these, but looks very, very good. Firm in the hilt, the hilt has a few bubbled patches of plating, but is overall very good. The fishskin grip is excellent. The plated steel scabbard against with a few small blisters, scuffs and marks, but still very good. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A well above average example that can be left as is, or minimally refurbished to restore to as new condition5. Please quote item reference M15 (1245). Further / full sized images available upon request.
