Description

The British 1897 Pattern Infantry Officers Sword is perhaps the most iconic British sword to date, due to the fact it has been in use and production from its conception right until modern times today. That is spanning over 100 years! Worn by applicable British Military Officers when in dress, this sword is also worn here by New Zealand Officers.

Our version of this sword is 100% stainless so no need for a rigid maintenance schedule. All in polished steel and chrome this sword will dazzle and amaze on display and in dress.

      An absolutely terrific blade, true to the original

      My great, great uncle was Sydney Douglas Buckleton and fought with the Australian Heavy Cavalry in the Second Boer War. His sword has been passed down the generations, but sadly while in "safe keeping" was sold. In my grief, I have found the EXACT sword, even down to the filigree on the blade. It is not sharp, because the British thought that "slashing" was ungentlemanly. Apparently, using the pointy bit was OK!!!
