Austrian 1827/37 Model Light Cavalry Officer's Sabre With Folding Guardimage ae57 1

Sold Item Notice

This is a rare sword / sabre and awesome with it. The highly curved blade is perfect for cut (slicing up an opponent), the folding guard providing more protection for the hand than the stirrup hilt sabers before it, yet folding in for normal sheathed wear.

The 33 1/4 inch blade in very good condition except for a couple of small nicks along the cutting edge, and firm in the hilt. The folding guard hilt in good condition, the spring retainer for an opened guard perhaps a little weak from age. The grip in good order, a couple of small chunks missing. The steel scabbard is sound, a couple of minor dings, no mouth piece apparent. The saber sheathes and draws well.

A really well made fighting sabre and exceptionally rare. Truly, a great investment for £1000. Please quote reference AE57 (0944). Further / full sized images available upon request.
