    Default P1856 Pioneers Sawback Sword

    Found this at a show for a price I was happy with, taking the condition into account. Unfortunately due to pitting I cannot see when it was manufactured, but it was made by Wilkinson and on the guard it is stamped 10.99 1. YK, which I take to mean it was issued to the 1st Yorkshire Regiment in October 1899. It would seem that this sword has had a hard life as shown by the dent in the handle and the fact that the quillon on the hilt has been sheared off at some point. Just thought it may be of interest to some of the edged weapon collectors to see, as they do not appear to be particularly common. Any comments are welcome. Cheers.
