The 1912 cavalry saber was the very last sword issued to British Army cavalry officers - at a time when horse attacks were largely obsolete and swords were rarely used as a combat weapon. It was considered the best cavalry sword ever designed and was still in use during the First World War. The 1912 model was clearly based on the 1908 model, but was much more elaborately decorated. When it was first introduced, it was provided to all officers to replace the inconsistent swords they had previously acquired privately. Compared to the standard sword, the grip was more ingeniously designed: while the standard 1908 version of the simple soldiers was equipped with a grip made of rubber or Bakelite, in the officer version these materials were replaced by shark leather with nickel silver thread inlay. In addition, the basket was decorated in the style of the 19th century officer's swords with an etched floral engraving (honeysuckle motif). The 1912 model is still used as a ceremonial sword by British, Australian and Canadian cavalry units. This beautiful, inexpensive replica from Deepeeka has a straight, single-edged blade made of spring steel EN45, which has a fuller over about two-thirds of its length. The grip with a wooden core is wrapped in black leather and twisted steel wire. A beautiful sabers for collectors and 20th century reenactment.
