In India sabres were used together with spears and even chain mail until far in the 19th century.
Around this period India was part of the British Empire and the Brits armed locally recruited troops that served the empire. This sabre was used by the British light cavalry.
The blade is obviously made after other British cavalry sabres, but the grip clearly has an Indian character. The sabre has a length of 99 cm and a blade of 84 cm. It weighs 1,3 kg and the blade is razor sharp.
