The hilt in good condition, once period blackened (now mostly gone). The fishskin grip is generally very good but with wear and a little faded. The grip wire bindings are generally good but some lesser strands a little astray. The period blackened scabbard with some rust patches; not too much / many. The sword sheathes and draws a little loosely.

A really lovely sword. Bargain price, just £550. Please quote item reference AC33. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Box 0234-1.18m (2.449).
