Gent`s

I picked this up a couple of years ago when I went to look at some other stuff. It had been in the vet`s shed since the war and the exterior shows it!

When I pulled the blade it was covered in the old hardened grease and looked nothing special. when i cleaned it off with spirit i got a surprise because it is about as mint as you might expect one to be. Perfectly preserved by the scabbard and grease. I also got the rust off the hilt.

I figured one day I might try a restoration, put it away and then forgot about it. looking at it again i don`t think I would bother and anyway it may be better left as is.

What do you think...still a collectable as it is or maybe just good for someone who wants to switch a rough blade and grip plates? The frog is still very good!

Maybe someone would appreciate it like it is???

I might decide to move it on. I probably paid too much for it but any rough guide as to what would be a fair deal for someone on this would also be appreciated?

Thanks!

War is when your government tells you who the enemy is.
Revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.

Hey, I think it looks great. What I really buy most is the blade and the fact this is a pioneer definitely helps. The blade is mint and probably as good as it gets. I would also leave it alone to tell its story and I am sure someone will buy it.
