Elizabeth II British Rifle Regiment Officer's Wilkinson Sword

Sales enquiries

No serial number (normally a sign another maker was specifically asked for a Wilkinson), but this is a quality sword and we are certain Wilkinson's made it as it looks like one (each maker has a "look"), and we can not imagine any of the few makers around during Queen Elizabeth II's reign who would be capable in any / every sense to mark their swords to another maker.



The 32 1/2 inch blade is in a little aged condition but very good & firm in the hilt. The plated hilt very good. The faux fishskin grip & twisted grip wire bindings also good, some wear. The black leather field service scabbard is possibly a new replacement. The sword sheathes and draws well but the absence of a leather stopper for the blade ricasso / forte means there is a small gap with the scabbard.

A great looking sword at a decent price; £650. Please quote item reference number R41. Further / large images available upon request. Box 0522-1.18 (2.082).
