A replica of the traditional sword belonging to the Celtic era, this pattern goes back a long way. It belongs to the 5th century. Archaeologists have long since acknowledged that this sword is based on the Roman Spatha' design rather than the huge and heavy broadsword of legend. With an attractive colour combination this sword charms and enthrals everyone who will be enthralled with the stylish yet simple beauty of it.
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.
An exact replica in miniature, this sword is in fact a perfect copy of the sword which is currently worn by Officers of the Infantry and other Corps, including the Royal Marines and the Senior Warrant Officers. This design has an ancient past which can be traced back to 1895 when the change in the technique of sword-fighting demanded a thrusting blade instead of the cut and thrust blade of the previous Victorian Officer's swords. In 1897, the pattern of this miniature was altered a bit.
The inside of the guard was turned down to prevent chafing the uniform coat. The guard bears the crest of the reigning monarch and also includes various scroll designs.
The popularity of this design is spread far and wide. This sword is carried by Officers of Commonwealth countries and also by independent countries who were previously under the British rule.
The Cavalry Officers sword sports a finely crafted carbon steel blade which is also decoratively and artistically etched. The guard features a suave and subtle honeysuckle design which is intricately engraved into its nickel-plated guard. Both Sam Browne and nickel-plated scabbards are available along with this miniature sword.
This sword has had a long history in the making. The first such Royal Navy pattern sword was commissioned as early as 1805. Later, its elegant but impractical design of having a superseded solid-hilt design was developed in 1827. The blade was standardised for all Royal Navy Officers in 1846 which then paved the way for the current light-weight, single-edged straight blade, which was adopted in 1929. The sheath is interlaced with an ivory black and plated-gold design. The fine blade of this sword is intricately etched with delicate engravings.
