1893M Swedish Cavalry Sword Smaland Hussars
Regiment K4, sold
In good overall condition, a 1893M Swedish Cavalry Sword for the
Smaland Hussars Regiment K4.
A highly impressive sword which most people would think was for
a Cuirassier given the almighty long and straight blade, but actually
not, this one is for the Smålands husarregemente K4.
The 37 inch straight blade is magnificent, in very good condition
and firm in the hilt. Marked E. SVALLING ESHILSTUNA HK GM to one
side of the forte, with 5th Troop weapon 235 of K4 regiment markings
to the obverse. The browned brass hilt is also very impressive,
some marks but generally good. The hardwood grip has lost its covering
but is still good. Unusual steel scabbard in good order. The sword
sheathes and draws well.
Not many around and quite some beast for just £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference O98 (0179). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
