George V / WW1 British Royal Navy Midshipman's
Dirk, for sale.
In good condition, a George V / WW1 British Royal Navy Midshipman's
Very well etched along the entire length of the blade but with
no maker's / retailer's name to the ricasso, so likely mid-WW1 when
time was short for such niceties.
The 17 3/4 inch grey etched blade is very good but for some light
wear and a few inert rust / patina spots. The blade is also firm
in the hilt. The brass hilt good, no gilt remaining. The white fishskin
grip a little grubby but good / sound. The twisted grip wire bindings
are good. Original sword knot is grubby but sound. The leather scabbard
and brass fittings scabbard is sound but with leather cracking /
fatigue. The dirk sheathes and draws well, the locking catch mechanism
A great dirk with the full blade length etching. A steal at just
£600. Please quote item reference AE73. Further / full sized
images available upon request. Tube ?
