The Artillery Pattern sword with scabbard. Made by WKC Germany according to ADF specification.

The Gunner's sword was introduced into the Royal Artillery in 1788.
The Royal Horse Artillery thought the infantry sword of the day was too heavy so the Light Cavalry pattern sword was preferred.
The 1822 Light Cavalry sword incorporated a three bar hilt which assisted in making the sword even lighter. The sword underwent some more changes in 1850. The blade of the sword is slightly curved.

   

Blade: Stainless steel, curved, forged, well-tempered, traditional acid etched, hand polished, hardness ca. 48-52 HCR Rockwell. Blade dimensions ca. 825 x 6 x 25 mm.

Guard: Cast brass, hand-polished, nickel-plated guard.

Grip: Skin covered handle, wrapped with silver plated wires.

Scabbard: Standard scabbard - wood body covered with real brown calf leather or optional extra steel tube, a nickel-plated, hand-polished scabbard with 2 rings.

Included Accessories: Protective cloth bag.
