Sales enquiries

Iconic Heiho. Ironic maker. Made for the Dutch by Alex Coppel of Solingen (Germany), the Netherlands overrun by Nazi Germany, this sword captured by the Japanese as they overran the Dutch East Indies and converted by the Japanese to HeiHo for use by Nationalist Indonesians against the Netherlands.

The 23 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, sharp, with a small nick to the cutting edge. Blade firm in hilt. The sheath / scabbard with feint Dutch regimental markings is aged and scuffed but good. This heiho sheathes and draws well.

A really nice example and conservation piece. Yours for £350. Please quote item reference number AD44. Further / large images available upon request. Box 0515-82x16x16 (1.165).
