The 27 inch (measured in a straight line) still sharp blade is in very good condition, one side with very little rust / patina. The sectional horn hilt is good, but is loose, the pommel / end being able to turn quite freely (the tang end could be removed and the interior of the hilt / grip perhaps glued or packed). The leather scabbard is aged but good (we have applied leather balsam). The sword sheathes and draws well.

Not many of these around / come onto the market! Grab it quick, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V84 (1079). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
