George V Flights / Wilkinson British Infantry Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Wilkinson made swords for Flights. This sword is etched to the ricasso "Flights Ltd. London Camberley Aldershot & Woolwich" which means the sword is post 1920.

The extra long (presumably for a tall officer) 33 inch blade is in very good condition, the etching still very clear, and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some aging, but not much at all. The black fishskin grip has faded a little in places, but is still very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings (a couple of the smaller standards ever so slightly astray in places). The leather sword knot, field service scabbard and suspension frog / straps aged but good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Wilkinson made a great quality sword and this one retailed by Flights Ltd is well above average. A superb addition to any collection for only £425. Please quote item reference number AB45. Further / full sized images upon request. Box 0099-1.18m (2.192)
