The 1908 Pattern Cavalry Trooper's Sword was the last service sword issued to the cavalry of the British Army. It is widely considered the most effective cavalry sword ever designed, although ironically its introduction occurred as swords finally became obsolete as military weapons. The 1912 Pattern British Cavalry Officer's Sword was introduced for officers, who had previously carried privately purchased non-regulation swords. The 1912 Pattern Sword
Our British Cavalry Officer's Sword was essentially the same as the 1908 Pattern but features more decoration. It has a tempered AISI 1065 high carbon steel blade with etched decoration. The bowl shaped guard features an engraved floral pattern that was designed to mimic the honeysuckle pattern that was seen on officer’s swords in the 19thcentury. The wood grip is covered with leather and bound with a steel wire overlay. The steel scabbard has suspension rings and is used when in full dress.
