This sword is considered by some to be the best fighting sword ever issued to a British Officer. As such it has never been replaced and is the current issue sword within the British Army. The only difference between this sword and its Victorian predecessor is the cypher of the reigning monarch at the time of issue. The polished blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered. Includes regulation pattern leather scabbard.
