The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition with the etching still vivid. The blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt also in very good condition, some slight flecks appearing (a good polish such as Simichrome may well vastly improve these). The black possibly faux fishskin grip and associated grip wire bindings in very good condition. The plated steel scabbard very good, some specks as with the hilt. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Lovely sword with the potential to make immaculate with some TLC and Simichrome. A great but, just £700. Please quote item reference number W36. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1145-121x19x16 (2.408).
