Italian 19th/20th Century Infantry Sword and Scabbard

italian-infantry-sword-3

 

A scarce and fine example of an Italian 19th/20th Century Infantry Sword and Scabbard.  The hilt style is very typical of Italian military swords that I have encountered from this period and I am trying to track down the actual model - will update the listing if I find out and would appreciate any help to positively identify this sword.  It is in excellent condition and retaining just about all the original blueing to the hilt and blade - I actually doubt whether this sword was ever issued as it does not show any wear to the blade.  The blade grip appears to be made from a chequered composite material.  With consecutive numbers to the hilt, blade and scabbard.  The sword comes complete with its original blued steel and leather scabbard - again in excellent condition.  Both sword and scabbard fit perfectly and there is no movement to the hilt and blade - both are rock solid.  An unusual addition to any collection of Italian military swords.  Blade length is 27 inches (33 inches overall).
