The 31 inch grey etched blade is in good condition but has some wear and the grey is faded in places. Blade firm in hilt. The langets are quite recessed. Grip of ivorine (synthetic ivory) in good condition. One of the grip rosettes is missing (it should be possible to fashion a new one if you are a dab hand with moulding clay, etc.), as is the pommel ring through which the sword knot would pass. The plated steel scabbard is good but has a corrected ding towards the chape and one of the suspension mounts raises up. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely.

Not many of these around. This one clearly has seen service. Low price, £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AF16 (1071). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
