Glittering in the sun - perhaps

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anybody point me towards a sword reconditioning service? I have an old one that needs a good polish and all the hilty bits redoing. The scabbard also needs replating. I believe the usual tailoring suspects will do it for an arm and a leg, but there has to be better value available somewhere, surely?
  2. Thanks very much, London Jock.
  3. I had my sword refurbished last year by Wilkinson Sword. It wasn't made by them originally. They did one hell of a job on it.

    Jeremy Tenniswood will be able to quote you for it - I've seen some he has done and they are good - he'll be a lot cheaper than Wilkinsons Sword:
  5. What about chatting to someone in Donnington or Bicester, I do believe that is where all the ceremonial service swords are conditioned and refurbished. Might save a few bob if you can get it done there.
