    The grip and the initials are the best!
    ;-)
    Also the way the grip fits is ok to me.
    I had quiet some TR WH swords back then (hope to find those polaroids too) ;-) and some were very wierd/ funny looking, but genuine.

    Show the blade and some better macro shots?
    I think this is a job for "Swordfish" a fellow member who is expert on swords

    Well im no expert on TR swords but the detail looks a bit off, also the engraving looks almost Indian made , they have a habit of making holes in certain items like the swastika, a hole drilled centrally, you see this on a lot of other Indian engraved items, statues , brass statuettes etc, its only an observation

    I agree.
    I believe that it is an Indian fake.

    It would appear as such. There is no gilt plating to the hilt at all,
    only pure brass. The engraving/detailing is way off.........
