Sword Archive

 

We can offer a research service for the owners of edged weapons (swords, knifes etc.) manufactured by Wilkinson Sword Limited. The majority of these weapons, upon completion, were given a serial number, The Wilkinson Sword archive of records, the earliest of which start on 1 January 1854 with serial number 5000, record details of the weapon, blade length and width, type of arm, date finished and purchasers name, sometimes the purchaser would be a retail outlet, other times the record simply gives the family/surname of the purchaser. Within the record books a few serial numbers are blank with no information recorded on them and some other pages/serial numbers are missing. To find your sword/knife in the records we must have the serial number of the arm, without this number we cannot help you.

 

Some sword records contain very minimal information, only details such as the manufacture date, sword dimensions and sometimes, for which branch of service the sword was ordered, i.e. the Cavalry; Infantry Regiments; Royal Navy; Royal Artillery or Royal Engineers. In these cases the purchasers name is not present. It maybe that you would still like a copy of the record even though it contains only this minimal information. Should this be the case please tick the requisite box on the Archive Request Form.
