The 35 3/16 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard also good. The leather covered grip has been scoured with a knife or similar at some stage, maybe to help with grip (some cavalrymen complained about the grip and how it was difficult to hold firm), but is otherwise good. The steel scabbard is good and sound. The saber sheathes and draws well.

Mole is THE make for these swords and with matching guard / scabbard markings, it is a steal at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference v11. Further / full sized images available upon request.
