British Royal Navy Officer's Sword - 1805 Pattern

£165.83

Up until 1805 the Royal Navy did not have a regulation pattern sword. The sword that was introduced was modelled on the 1803 pattern infantry sabre that was previously carried by Navy and Marine officers. The 1805 pattern sword was used by Lord Horatio Nelson and he was no doubt armed with it at his most famous battle, The Battle of Trafalgar. After he was killed at the battle his sword was returned to England and is now on display in the Nelson Museum, Great Yarmouth, England. This sword was in constant use until it was replaced in 1827 by a newer model. The polished blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered.

Excellent replicaReview by Brian

This is an excellently made sword, I believe made in India, but it does not lack the quality of so many other replicas. Not having seen an original close up, it looks to me to be a superb copy, from pictures and details I have seen. The detail of the scrolls and emblems are superb.The scabbard is made of leather and I thought perhaps a little thin and flexible, but as I said, I don't know. I am judging it on original British bayonet scabbards that I have, which are to be fair , much shorter.
Some fake makers markings would have been a nice touch. The price is perhaps a little high but the quality makes up for it. It makes an excellent accessory for any British Navy uniform, either for display or whatever.
I also received excellent service from Hema. Thank you (Posted on 24/03/2018)

Me & my partner ordered this replica of Lord Nelson's sword from yourselves and it arrived today (in plenty of time). We purchased this as a present for her father's 60th as he has always been a massive fan of Nelson. We are all extremely pleased with this item and would like to pass on our thanks to the whole team involved in this purchase. (Posted on 16/02/2017)
