British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1796 Pattern
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 EN9 steel and has been well tempered.
Total length: 96 cm
