1912 Patt Rare George V Cavalry Troop Sergeant-Major's
In good to very good condition, a rare 1912 pattern British George
V Cavalry Troop Sergeant-Major's Sword by S & J Kitchen, Sheffield.
A rare sight; a British officer's 1912 pattern cavalry sword with
War Department stamps to the blade forte and a trooper's 1908 pattern
scabbard. This is no mismatch however, it is a very rare Cavalry
Troop Sergeant-Major's sword, and what a beauty. In well above average
condition, it is rare to find a commissioned officer's 1912P in
such good order. The etching on the blade is superb and clear, the
overall sword has been very well looked after.
The lovely 34 1/4 inch blade is in very good order, some minute
rust spots but nothing too much, marked to George V and maker S
& J Kitchen, Sheffield, War Department stamps, etc. Blade is
firm in the hilt. The hilt bowl in generally very good condition,
well above average. The fishskin grip a little worn and the twisted
grip wire bindings a little loose here and there as you would expect,
but overall very good and sound. The steel scabbard in very good
order, with some rust patination of course. The sword sheathes and
draws exceptionally well. Under-sold at only £450. Further
