    FS: Spanish 1895 pattern cavalry trooper's sword

    Spanish 1895 pattern cavalry trooper's sword, made in Toledo in 1898. This is a good solid example of an important model of cavalry sword in the history of European cavalry weapons. You can clearly see the new thinking in the hist design which along with other European models led to the development of the British 1908 pattern cavalry sword. In fact this Spanish model is somewhat similar to some British prototypes that appeared around 1900. The grips are hardwood, secured by screw bolts like a bayonet grip, the hilt parts are all steel and very solid, the blade is curved and surprising light weight. This is one of the last European designs of cavalry sword to be curved. The sword and scabbard are in solid condition, but with pitting to the guard and scabbard in particular. There is only very light pitting to the blade. The grip is in good condition.

    Hey Matt, I know this is old but just wanted to be a pedant and say that this is a Modelo Roberto Prototype Officers Sabre.
