The 37 1/2 inch spear pointed blade has been sharpened (the point and cutting edge), in good condition, some wear (such as the scabbard guide marks near the poinçons). Blade firm in the grip but there is a little hilt movement. The heavy brass guard / hilt mostly very good but the more vulnerable lip has buckled a bit, most likely from a fall. The very heavy steel scabbard has been period chemically browned (as almost all were) and has retained most of this finish. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A stunning and deadly icon of a sword. Your awesome piece of history for just £1200. Please quote item reference number W27. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1148-121x19x16 (3.354).
