It is NOT a modern made sword for re enactment etc. Large pommel, wire bound grip. Curved crossguard and a 36 inch double edged blade. Has been varnished which has cracked and made the surface dirty, however this could be cleaned off if you wish to do so. Overall in good, sound condition, cross guard slightly loose.. Grade 8
