The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition but the etching is very feint. Blade firm in hilt. The brass gothic hilt / guard is in good shape. Fishskin grip good but with some discolouration. The twisted grip wire bindings mostly good but some lesser strands going astray. Original sword know aged and partly incomplete, but sound. The brass scabbard with several dings and dents but sound / good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very good example for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V65 (1056). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
