The 18 1/4 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt remarkably good for its age; one small ring just before the blade is broken, otherwise just age and wear. The ivory remains very good with only tiny damage / wear. The sheath shows age, some splitting near the throat, but still sound and good.

Try and find a better one! Especially at only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference M21 (1254). Further / full sized images upon request.
