  • 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 - 1796 Pattern

    1 Review(s)

    Famed for its use by Britain’s Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Peninsular War and Waterloo, this sword was also supplied to the Prussian Cavalry in great numbers and even found favour in the USA. This design was suggested for British service by cavalry officer John Gaspard Le Marchant, who believed cavalry swords should be light and have a curved, slashing blade. The long curved blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well tempered.
