First time poster so apologies for any mistakes.
I would be grateful for any assistance in identifying this sword. It has been in our family for 50 years.
From the little research I have done I know that important information can be found on the hilt. Sadly the Rayskin and bindings have slipped/shrunk and removal of the pins in the hilt would probrbaly cause a lot of damage.
Would also be grateful for any advice on moving the bindings back into position (if it is advisable) so that we view the tang.
Happy to take more pics etc as required.
