Sales enquiries

The Royal India Marina was a very small navy, so these swords are scarce at best. This one is made rare due to the Cardiff Retailer being etched to the ricasso and the exceptional RIM etching.

The 31 1/2 inch blade is in excellent condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt very good. The fishskin grip very good as are the twisted grip wire bindings (one lesser strand slightly astray). Folding guard section works and locates well. The scabbard is good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A+ example and just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V87 (1094). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
