1827 Pattern British Commonwealth Naval Officers Sword Current Wlkinson Pattern Real Rayskin

$435.00

This particular pattern sword is the same as those carried today by the Royal Navy, Canadian Navy, Royal Australian Navy and other Commonwealth navies.  First introduced in 1827 this sword has undergone three major blade shape changes, this being the last. The blade shape of this sword is based upon the current design, often referred to as the "Wilkinson Pattern".  The sword incorporates a unique mechanism that often proved a life-saver. The inner side of the guard is hinged so that it can be folded down to engage with a pin on the scabbard top mount. This locks the sword into the scabbard and also prevents wear on the dress uniform.  The hilt is of solid brass and the grip is of real ray skin like the originals in World War II and prior.  The blade is finely etched tempered carbon steel with no edge for parade use.  Solid brass is also used for the scabbard fittings with the scabbard it self of genuine leather.
