  • British Officer’s Horse Head Sword - 18th Century

    The British Infantry Officer did not carry a regulation infanty sword until 1786. Before this officers were responsible for choosing their own swords. Whilst swords with Lion Head pommels were a popular choice, a little rarer were those with horse head pommels, perhaps alluding to the White Horse of Hannover of the Georgian monarchs.

    Our British Officer’s Horse Head Sword features and a tempered AISI 1065 high carbon steel blade with etched decoration. The ornate brass hilt features a wood grip that is wrapped with brass wire. The scabbard is made from brass and features two fixed hanging rings.

  • British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1796 Pattern

    2 Review(s)

    Famed for its use by Britain’s Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Peninsular War and Waterloo, this sword was also supplied to the Prussian Cavalry in great numbers and even found favour in the USA. This design was suggested for British service by cavalry officer John Gaspard Le Marchant, who believed cavalry swords should be light and have a curved, slashing blade. The long curved blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered.

  • British Heavy Cavalry Sword - 1796 Pattern

    1 Review(s)

    The 1796 Heavy Cavalry Sword was based on the Austrian 1775 pattern sword and was used by British Heavy Cavalry regiments such as the Dragoon Guards. The large blade had incredible cutting power but was cumbersome to use. It is perhaps most famous as the sword used by Richard Sharpe of the 95th Rifles in the series of books written by Bernard Cornwell. The polished blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered. Includes regulation pattern steel scabbard.

  • Prince of Wales’s 30th Light Dragoons Officer's Sabre

    Our British Light Dragoons Sabre is a replica of the swords carried by the Prince of Wales’s 30th Light Dragoon Regiments from 1794-1796. A similar sword was carried by the Princes of Wales’s 10th Light Dragoon Regiments (still in existence as the 10th Royal Hussars). The 30th Light Dragoons Regiment only existed for a couple of years, making this sword both rare and collectable. The National Army Museum in London has one of the few surviving originals in its collection.

    Total length: 100cm
    Blade length: 86cm
    Handle length: 10cm
    Blade thickness: 7mm - 3.7mm

The ornate brass hilt encloses a leather wrapped wooden grip with twisted brass wire overlay. The wooden scabbard is covered with black leather and features an integrated brass sheath with brass hanging rings.

  • British Household Cavalry Sword - 1834 Pattern

    After the Crimean War there were many changes made within British Heavy Cavalry Regiments. One of these changes was the adoption of a variation of the 1st Life Guards Sword by the 2nd Life Guards. This sword served throughout the Boer War and WWI until the regiments were amalgamated in 1922. It still serves today as the official state sword of the Life Guards. The polished blade has been forged from EN9 steel and has been well tempered.

  • British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1845 Pattern

    The 1845 Pattern British Light Cavalry Sabre featured a similar hilt to its earlier predecessor from 1822, but featured a radically different blade. The earlier Pipe-backed blades were unpopular, the blades were poor at cutting, parrying heavier blades and their asymmetrical tips made effective thrusting difficult. The revised 1845 Wilkinson style blade was stiffer with a spear point tip that was perfect for thrusting, and featured thicker edges for parrying the heavier swords wielded by the horsemen of India.

    Our British Light Cavalry Sabre features a tempered AISI 1065 high-carbon steel blade. The steel hilt features a leather wrapped wooden grip wrapped with twisted steel wire. The scabbard is constructed from steel and featured 2 integrated hanging rings.

    Total length: 98 cm
    Blade length: 83.5 cm
    Grip length:  11.5 cm
    Weight: 825g
    Blade thickness (base): 0.7cm
    Blade width (base):  2.5 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 18 cm
    Blade: AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Nut
    Scabbard: Steel
