Wilkinson 1908 Pattern British Cavalry Trooper’s
Very good condition Wilkinson Sword made 1908 pattern British
cavalry trooper's sabre dated May 1919.
In very good condition indeed, a 1908P British cavalry trooper's
sabre in its original steel livery; the sabre was painted for field
use originally as remnants of the paint remain around the bowl guard
(could be easily removed but I would recommend leaving it for authenticity).
Made by World famous Wilkinson Sword, various markings show the
sabre was used by a cavalry regiment originally and then passed
onto a training facility.
With the post WW1 blackened grip, this is a very attractive piece
indeed of, let us not forget this, a sabre reckoned by many if not
most to be the best of all time (the USA basically copied this model).
The 35 inch blade in very good order and firm in the hilt, the grip
is good and firm too. The sabre sheathes very well into its very
good condition steel scabbard. Further / full sized photos available
upon request. Please note, the white smearing you may see is actually
storage protection wax; it wipes off easily to leave a full shine.
