The British Royal Horse Guard were one of the Household Regiments of the British military - an elite of the top tier, their wargear reflected their status; tall, plumed helms, colorful sashes and well-groomed horses, they radiated the grandeur of the Royalty and its military traditions. Not merely a ceremonial parade regiment, the Royal Horse Guards served admirably in the Napoleonic and Peninsular Wars. Two squadrons of them fought with distinction in the Household Brigade at Waterloo in the charge of the British Heavy Cavalry.
The 1832 Pattern Royal Horse Guards Officer’s Dress Sword reflects the ornate gear and status of the Royal Horse Guards. Its style is influenced by the embellished cavalry swords of the Continent; namely a French style pommel and a German style guard.
This reproduction has an unsharpened blade of high carbon steel etched on both sides with the symbols of British royalty. The hilt is of brass and the grip is ribbed leather wrapped with inlaid brass wire. The scabbard is of steel with brass accents and suspension rings. A leather washer at the base of the blade protects the crossguard from colliding into the metal throat of the scabbard.
