The leather scabbard has shrunk and the blade has possibly rusted, and the sword is now tight in the scabbard. It may well be possible to release the sword as the blade terminates in a metal swollen tang above the grip (perfect for holding in a vice).
The bow is 114 cm tip to tip, the sheathed sword is 87 cm. Everything in aged but overall very good condition.
