    You shouldn't be able to buy a sword on Ebay any more due to regulations of selling knives etc now.
    I'm a little crazy, I like to run ultra distances for fun.

    Re: Swords

    When someone becomes a warfare officer, or any officer in the Royal Navy for that matter are they given a sword or do they have to find their own? Just wondering

    Draw one from the armoury when it's needed.
    What exactly is the benefit of doubt?

    Royal navy swords for £175 at WWW>WORLDWIDEARMS.COM get the knot from them as well and the belt off ebay from Pakistan,cant remeber the name but about £25+postage,dont worry about the belt its hidden under your jacket and if you do wear over a great coat it will polish up a treat. had mine nearly a year about £230 all in if I remeber right and they are as smart as the expensive ones.

    There's one listed there now - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Royal-Navy-Naval-Officers-Sword-1827-Pattern_W0QQitemZ150338989319QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK _Collectables_Militaria_LE?hash=item150338989319&_ trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1683|66%3A2|65% 3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318. Could be a bargain!

    Ceremonial swords aren't sharpened, so no problem with sellin g on Ebay.
