Sales enquiries

Serial number 40114, etched to maker Wilkinson Sword, etched on the obverse to Matthews Outfitters of Portsmouth who sold Wilkinson Swords. This is a quality sword, with a solid guard (no hinged folding section), the scabbard secured with a dirk style catch.

The 31 1/2 inch blade is in good condition but with a few patina spots here and there, but not many. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt / guard very good. The white fishskin grip a little grubby, some of the lesser grip wire strands a little astray; not many and not by much. The leather with metal fittings scabbard is aged, the leather has dried and cracked / lost some of its surface, and there is a kink that allows the unsupported to flop near the chape. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A well above average sword in above average condition. Well priced at; £750. Please quote item reference AC41. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0289-1m (2.043).
