I am selling an authentic reproduction of an officer's epee or slightly curved "straight" sword dating from the early 18th century.
Its grip is bound with silver-plated wire, exactly like an original, which were of course bound with full silver wire.
Its steel blade is 80 cms./31.5" long.
It is engraved with scroll ornaments, weapons, a crown and letters CR on both sides.
Total length of sword (blade in leather scabbard with brass furniture) is 98 cms/38.5".
Weight : 1 kg/2 lbs.
It is ideal for display and a first-class stage sword.
Original swords in such a good condition are very rare and thus very expensive for collectors.
