broad arrow, plus Enfield acceptance marks to the forte and spine.
The 25 1/2 inch blade in very good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt and guard generally very good. The grips with some age
damage to the edges but overall very good. The locking pin mechanism
works if a little sticky to return (needs oil). The leather and
