Ref027-UK-Cavalry-c1796-Officer’s Beak Nose Pipe Back
English Napoleonic sabre, with a broad pipe back blade with a wide clipped point. The hilt is of a rare variety with a back strap formed in the style of a beak which the knuckle guard mounts into. The curved pipe back sabre blade once had engravings but over the years they have become very faint with polishing and the blade has some faint pitting. The ferrule has a through rivet which was usual for the “beak” style 1796 sabres instead of ears off of the back strap for additional strength. Grip is bound in Fishskin & retains 90%. Overall sword length: 38.38” (975mm) Blade length: 33.85” (860mm)
