95th Rifles Regimental Sabre - 1803 Pattern

£187.50

Be the first to review this product

This sword is a must for fans of Bernard Cornwell’s “Sharpe”! Army regulations specified that the swords for officers of the Rifle Corps was to be ‘a sabre similar to the Light Cavalry’. The 1796 sabre was clearly too long and the result was the 1803 Pattern Regimental Sabre.

This sword is based on an original in the National Army Museum. The original blade has faded evidence of complex etching, this has not been replicated on our tempered AISI 1065 high carbon steel blade. The steel hilt features a wood grip wrapped in black leather with a steel wire overlay. It is also etched with the number 95, alluding to the 95th Rifles Regiment. The wooden scabbard is wrapped in black leather and has steel fittings and suspension rings. It is based on a watercolour print from 1812 showing an officer of the 95th wearing a scabbard of this configuration.
