The 33 inch blade is exceptionally good condition and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt has some bends (knocks) as it common with these brass gothic hilted swords, but is generally very good. The fishskin grip with enough wear to show this sword was held frequently; wire bindings are good. Steel scabbard with some knocks and pitting here and there but sound. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very good, well above average example. A bargain at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U36 (0856). Further / full sized images upon request..
