Sales enquiries

Etched to military outfitters "Alkit Cambridge Circus, London W2" which means the sword was actually made by Wilkinsons, and it shows quality wise. The type of pommel and quilllon finales indicates this sword was for an officer in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

The 33 inch blade is very well etched and in very good condition; some tiny brown spots / blotches appearing but not many and duly treated by us. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt good. The black fishskin grip is good but has patches of wear. The twisted grip wire is good but some has a little movement. The leather field service scabbard sound but dry; some old fashioned leather balsam would correct this and bring the colour out, but would make it slightly tacky to the touch. A leather frog loop would hide the gap between the main leather section and top section. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A lovely sword in well above average condition. Well prices at £1000. Please quote item reference number AF02. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1047-121x18x17 (2.071).
