Wanted: Wilkinson RN Officer's Sword


Lantern Swinger
I am looking for a Wilkinson RN Officer’s sword with scabbard, sword knot (and Bag). I did buy one at Dartmouth, but for reasons I can’t remember ended up selling it to a buddy for buttons just before I left the Navy. I am getting married in July and I thought it would be a nice touch to have a sword like the one I used to have, to cut the wedding cake.

If anyone has one in good condition and would consider selling, please let me know via PM

Thanks for the offer / suggestion. I will keep you in mind BarneyRNSM & will try BJ.

One of the "specialist companies" offered a refurbished one for a mere £1600 & VAT. I am sure that it is a very nice sword for that price......

A word of warning, which came to me from a very senior Chief Steward.

Whilst the cake cutting with the sword looks great, I was warned not to do it, as the cake can react and damage the blade. What he said was to cut the cake using the traditional knife and have the Phots take the picture with the cut cake and sword in hand.

Sorry to be the bearer of that news, but it would be a shame to have that happen to you.
