Product Description

Pre-1845 British Royal Navy Officers Sword

The regulations for the basic design of the Royal Navy Officers Sword were established in 1827. At that time, most English swords and sabers utilized the pipe-backed blade that was designed to give the cutting edge additional strength and prevent bending during thrusts. In 1845, a British sword maker named Wilkinson introduced a fullered blade design that was quickly taken up and copied in various forms by other makers. The earlier pipe-backed blades quickly fell out of fashion and Royal Navy Officers Swords produced after 1845 period generally incorporated the newer blade design. Offered here is a reproduction of the earlier pipe-backed Royal Navy Officers Sword that would have been common from the period from 1827 to the late 1840s.
