Information for Life Guard Dress Sword:

v>The post-Crimean War period brought a flurry of changes to the regimental patterns of swords carried by Britain’s Heavy Cavalry. Included in this was the adoption of a variation of the 1st Life Guards 1834 pattern sword by the 2nd Life Guards in 1865. Officially sanctioned in 1872, this sword was carried by this famous regiment through the Boer War and WWI until 1922 when the 1st and 2nd Life Guards were amalgamated. This did not end the life of this impressive pattern. Instead the "2" was dropped from the guard’s ornamental cypher and it became the official state sword of the Life Guards. As the images will attest, the detailing on this replica is breath taking and the craftsmanship astounding. The steel guard with its ornamental cypher and brass studs is obviously streaking. The hilt is completed with a checkered pommel, a stepped back strap and a wire wrapped black grip. The 39 inch blade is well fullered and with the appropriate etching work for an elite unit officer. Completing this fine piece is its steel scabbard with brass mountings. This is an incredible piece and considering its price, a must for your collection
