A robust backsword, the model 1796 cavalry sword was regarded as too heavy for delicate, gentlemanly swordsmanship - which was precisely why the regiments of Dragoons, Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards liked it. Thick, straight-bladed and powerful, the 1796 sword could cleave through foes with abandon from horseback. Sgt. Charles Ewart of the Scots Greys 2nd Dragoons captured a French Imperial Eagle Standard during Waterloo wielding the 1796 sword. He had to defeat several soldiers fanatically defending the regimental symbol they had pledged their lives to defend. This sword is featured in Bernard Cornwell’s Sharpe novel series as the protagonist, Richard Sharpe of the 95th Rifles, wields this sword in the Napoleonic Wars.

This 1796 Heavy Cavalry Sword blade is made from tempered high carbon steel. The hilt is of steel with a ribbed leather grip. The scabbard is of steel with ring mounts. The sword was made by Universal Swords of India.

This ‘’Munitions Grade” sword is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades making them poorly suited for sharpening and cutting, but are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
