Sold Item Notice

The reason this iconic awesome sabre is in virtually new condition is because it was never issued (there are no rack / weapon numbers to the hilt or scabbard); this sabre was made, went into stores and stayed there! But yes, it is 100% authentic / genuine.

The 35 3/8 inch blade is in very good condition (save for a few patina patches one one side towards the point) and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt overall very good, some tarnish / age but just the right amount. The original leather grip is in very good condition, as is the twisted grips wire and this is a huge bonus as most of these swords lost their bindings and saw their grip leather shrink. The original chemically browned scabbard is very good, some loss of browning due to cleaning, but not much has gone. The sabre sheathes and draws very well if a little tightly, as a new / unused sabre would.

Best condition example we have seen. A snip at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference V16 (0960). Further / full sized images available upon request.
