The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, a bit aged and scuffed, but the etching still nice and clear. The blade is firm in the hilt, which itself is in good condition. The fishskin grip a little aged but good; the twisted grip wire also good but a lesser strand missing (one turn only). The plated steel scabbard has lost some plating and gained some light rust, but remains sound. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A nice sword at a nicer; £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R22 (0495). Further / full sized images available upon request.
