In good aged condition, a scarce and awesome 1827M Russian Saw Back Pioneers Falchion Sword.
This is a fearsome sword, not like most brass handled swords for sure, though mostly used for sawing and chopping fire wood.
19 3/16 inch blade is in good condition though black brown from patina, firm in the hilt, 26 1/8 inches overall. The ribbed brass grip equally good with a pleasing age tarnish. Weight 1.483 Kg (heavy, very heavy).
A really good and above average evocative rare sword. Jump in quick; £550. Please quote item reference T60. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0786-1m (2.101).
