St.James Street
LONDON

Richard Johnston established his shop at that address in 1798. Five-ball hilt is elegant, with an extended counter-guard, a nice scrolled ebony grip and a "cigar band" engraved with a beautifully executed fouled anchor. Rapier style blade is 85 cm. long, and retains vestiges of the blued background, and features gold-filled military decorations. Leather scabbard has shrunk over time, and fits the sword very tightly. Care must be executed in removing the sword from the scabbard. Sword is feather-light, lively, with excellent balance.
A wonderful British naval officer's sword dating back to the Battle of the Nile and Trafalgar!
