    BladesSwordsEarly 19th Century French Cane Walking Stick with Concealed Sword Blade

    ~ An early 19th century French cane walking stick with concealed sword blade ~


    The bamboo walking cane has a brass ferrel tip with an unhallmarked silver mount below the grip. The cane is uncarved with a pleasing natural finish.

    The sword pulls out from the cane with the silver mount forming the top of the scabbard.

    The blade is a long and straight four sided foil with a fine pointed tip. The rectangular cross section helps date this piece to the earlier portion of the 19th Century. The blade is marked to the ricasso with the number 5 with a crossed sword mark and initials F.I.

    Along the edge of the blade "St Etienne" and "F.Escoffier" with an F.B.E mark to each side.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The stick measures 35 inches (89cm) The blade measures 24 inches (61cm). This piece weighs 290g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The piece is in good condition for its type. The cane had mellowed with age to a pleasing finish with only light bruising. There is a split to the wood along the handle and down a portion of the scabbard. This looks to be case by natural shrinkage of the wood as opposed to damage.

    The blade is in a good state overall with some light pitting. The blade is clean and straight.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage costs £18 or the sword stick can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
