The 32 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt in very good shape, very little wear or bending, a little bowing of the back piece over the grip but not a lot. The black fishskin grip is very good. The twisted brass grip wire bindings have a few bits missing, but these frail brass bindings are so prone to that. The superb brass scabbard has a ding or two near the chape but is otherwise very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A scarce sword and probably the most attractive ever British sword. A bargain at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number X02 (1232). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
