57) A very nice original pair of WW1 long reach wire cutters. A classic pattern of wire cutters. these ones are French made and may well have been used by the British as it was not uncommon to be issued with locally made items. They are in excellent order. the blades are perfect with no damage. the action is tight and moves smoothly. the wooden grips are good with just minor ancient woodworm in places. all is dead. they show ancient surface rust which has left a lovely patina to them. they measure 19 1/2 inches in length.
