Title 1890 pattern cavalry trooper's sabre
Nationality British
Period c 1890
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Slightly scruffy example of the penultimate Maltese Cross hilt sabre. Numerous issue dates stretching from the mid-1890s until approximately 1906. Forte of blade marked '/90'. Numerous regimental issue stamps and cancellations to back of hilt.

90%+ factory finish to blade with several small patches of pitting towards the point. Chequered leather grips in reasonable condition, but now somewhat smooth from extensive use. Good iron scabbard, which has been recently machine polished, but all markings, including issue date for 1899, to top of scabbard are clearly visible. Point sharpened for first two inches or so of both sides of blade.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
