  • British General 1831 Mameluke Saber

    At first glance, this sword may appear to be a Mameluke saber, but a closer look at the blade bears the etched markings of the crown of the British Empire. This British adoption of an Eastern design is a reflection of Britain’s worldly Empire, its spoils after the defeat of Napoleon. When Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington became Commander in Chief in 1827, he would be seen carrying a Mameluke sword gifted to him by an Indian Potentate. No doubt influenced by him, by 1831 the Mameluke-hilted saber would become the regulation sword for officers of Major-General and above.

    This reproduction of this unique sword of the British Empire bears the crossed Marshal’s baton and sword etched into the blade of unsharpened, tempered high carbon steel. The crossguard and brass accents of the hilt are brass and the grip is faux ivory. The scabbard is of brass with two suspension rings. A leather washer at the base of the blade protects the crossguard from colliding into the brass throat of the scabbard.

  • British Household Cavalry Sword - 1834 Pattern

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 Cavalry Sword - 1853 Pattern

    The 1853 Pattern British Cavalry Sword was introduced during the Crimean War and saw service at the Battle of Balaclava – most notably during The Charge of the Light Brigade where the Russian gunner’s great coats proved to withstand all but the sharpest of blades but fell to the thrusts of the British cavalrymen. This sword was also the first to be issued to both Light and Heavy Cavalry regiments. The polished blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon 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
