British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1845 Pattern

£165.83

Be the first to review this product

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.
