G'day Chris,

Is the blade actually signed "Warrington" and not "Warranted"?

Cheers,
Bryce

Hi Bryce,
No, it’s Warranted.

Thanks for pointing this out Chris. At first glance I accepted this was an original. It wasn't until I looked closer that the problems become obvious. I don't want to point them all out, so that the makers don't get any more tips.
Cheers,
Bryce

The design is machine engraved (I did quite a bit of that years ago). The new finish seems to have had a scrubby pad used to age the appearance.
Possibly someone bought the sword for its hilt parts and is disposing of the blade at auction?

The auctioneers have changed the description to “a good quality reproduction”. I wonder if that’s the only one or if we will see lots more.

Sold for £220.
