Here is A U3 M3 made by Imperial.
The handle has been either replaced or smoothed to the shape you see it.
Any thoughts please let me know.
The grip has definitely been replaced. The pommel was also re-peened and reshaped.
Early 'B.M. Co.' M8 scabbard. What is interesting though, is that one side of the
crossguard has not been bent forward.............!
