One of the more common requests that I have is for the replacement of worn or missing shagreen and the re-wiring of sword grips.

Below are some of the recent intensive restorations that I have completed.

This P1796 Light Cavalry sabre was made by Thomas Gill in 1798 and has a rare beaked pommel. It required an intensive clean, paint removal from the scabbard, attention to the grip and a polish.

This badly damaged P1796 Light Cavalry sabre required a complete restoration. You can see more about the restoration of this sabre if you visit my blog.

This P1803 Flank officer's sabre required a full hilt restoration (repair to the guard, ivory grip & re-wiring) and cleaning.
