    Last revised in 1897, the straight carbon steel blade of this sword is two-edged for the final section of its length and finely etched with the regimental crest. Formed from nickel-plated steel, the guard of the three-quarter basket hilt is pierced and etched with a scroll pattern that incorporates the royal cypher of the current sovereign.

    The grip is in black fish-skin bound with silver-plated copper wire.

    The Infantry Officer’s Sword can be carried in a Sam Browne leather scabbard with plated steel mouthpiece for service wear or in a nickel-plated steel scabbard for full dress occasions.

    By Royal Command

    “His Majesty having been pleased to order that the Battalion Officers are for the future to make use of swords, it’s His Majesty’s pleasure that the officers of the Infantry Corps shall be provided with a strong, substantial, uniform sword, the blade of which is to be straight and made to cut and thrust.”

    The history of the British Army Sword began with this official proclamation from King George III, replacing the antiquated spontoon or half-pike with the fighting sword that remains regulation issue to this day.
