Sales enquiries

Apart from the carry case and a little old / dry metal polish remnants here and there (easily cleaned off), this 100+ year old sword is in pretty much parade ground condition.




The 32 1/4 inch grey etched blade is in very good condition, just a few small age spots / rubs, and firm in the hilt. The hilt is equally very good. Fishskin grip in very good condition, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. Plated steel scabbard in superb condition. Leather field scabbard has some wear around the chape / drag but is very good. Original sword knot good. Carry case is aged and the top and lower sections have separated (stitching gone). The sword sheathes and draws very well into / out of both scabbards, the plated steel scabbard feels especially good when sheathing. No maker's or retailer's name etched to the blade, so a smaller tailor's / outfitter's / retailer's item (where the maker did not have an etching template for them), or where the officer specifically asked for no such etching.

A great sword and a great buy for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S91 (0714). Further / full sized images available upon request.
