Price QualitysteExcellent copy of the welsh trench sword used by the 9th battalion the royal welch fusiliers 1917
a fraction of the price of an original if you can find one, having once owned an original I am more than pleased with this windlass copy.
designed by French armourer and sculptor felix joubert, the motto translates For the honour of wales.
as the swords were made in Britain and some in france, there will be a slight variation in some, mainly on the guard rivet. some are pronounced and some ground flush. the original sheaths were also leather covered.
I had a sharp edge put on mine from southern swords, overall a good item and excellent service.
Price QualityBillSeems to be an accurate copy of the Welsh Fusiliers Trench Dagger that I've seen photos of. Very pleased with it, although I don't know what steel It's made of. The sheath although good looks different to the originals which appear to have had webbing around them, That said very pleased with the purchase, especially at the price.
