British 1895 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword by Robert Mole
Scarce British 1895 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword.
A scarce example of a late-Victorian British 1895 Pattern Infantry Officer’s sword. This style of hilt was only in use for around two years when it was superceded by the 1897 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword – due to the fact that the inner edge of the 1895 Pattern hilt rubbed against the officer’s uniform and caused fraying. Only two years after its introduction a turn-down inner lip was added in 1897 to avoid this problem, consequently there are far fewer 1895 Pattern hilt swords in existence. This sword was made by Robert Mole and included extensive etching to the blade. Comes with a leather field service scabbard. Blade length is 32 inches (38.5 inches overall).
