The 35 inch very well etched period sharpened blade is in very good condition, with only some wear and patina spots, and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some patina patches nut overall good. The fishskin grip in very good condition, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The plated steel scabbard has some larger and deeper rust / patina patches but is good and sound. The leather sword knot, a later addition, is very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very good and impressive sword that would be an excellent candidate for having the hilt and scabbard refurbished to give you a collector's dream. Come on, it is as cheap as chips at only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote reference number T73 (0804). Further / full sized images available upon request.
