The straight carbon steel blade of this sword was in 1897 revised to make it double-edged for the final section of its length. An ornate regimental crest is finely etched onto it. Made from exquisite nickel-plated steel, the guard of its three-quarter basket hilt is engraved with a scroll pattern which incorporates the royal cypher of the reigning sovereign.
Silver-plated copper wire is carefully wound over the black fish-skin bound grip of the sword.The Infantry Officers' sword could be borne in a Sam Browne leather scabbard with plated brass mouthpiece for service wear, or in a fine nickel-plated steel scabbard for the purpose of a full dress occasion.
This Infantry Large Miniature is available with a nickel or brown leather scabbard.
