Hi Phil any hall marks on the ferrule? Or is it not silver?

The fittings all seem to be ferrous, there is light gilding on the blade though.

Sorry Phil should have been clearer. Swordsticks are only legal to own if considered antiques, ie over 100yrs old, hallmarks or similar provide excellent evidence of age if there is ever a query.

Is that an epee bladed sword stick, Phil?

It looks square-section to me - epee blades are triangular.

The blade is flattened diamond section and seems to be made for the piece rather than made from a broken sword or similar.
