BRITISH WWI ROBBINS OF DUDLEY SHORT SWORD KNIFE.
The extremely rare shorter of the two models known as the short sword, this example with the blade just over 8 inches or 21.5cm. Some old cleaned corrosion to the blade and slight sharpening to the edges but the profile has not been abused. Nice heavy handle in a dark patinated bronze colour. All fitted into its original leather scabbard with it securing loop and belt loop. This item last sold by Regimentals in 2010, now consigned to us. A full description of this and the longer example on page 27 image number 41 of British and Commonwealth Military Knives by Ron Flook.
