WW2 / George VI Royal Navy Officer's Sword, Bag, Belts

Sales enquiries

No maker's / cutler's / retailer's name etched to blade, plus has a plain brass proof slug, so possibly if not probably late World War 2 (or just after). Etched to King George VI (reigned 11 December 1936 – 6 February 1952).

The 31 1/4 Inch blade is very well etched and in excellent condition, plus firm in the hilt. The hilt is also very good, as is the fishskin grip (some of the lesser grip wires are a little astray, some diligent home correction would probably work wonders). Sword knot with a little age but good. The leather and gilt metal fittings scabbard in good order (some loss of colour to to parts of the leather, some liquid boot polish might well suit). Folding guard section works well and locates properly onto top scabbard fitting pin. The all weather bag is actually very good for age, but with some cracking etc. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average condition sword for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number P28 (0210). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
