This sabre is a replica of originals that were used by officers of the British Empire from 1831 onwards. In 1831 the British general introduced this sabre as an officer sabre during the Battle of Waterloo. The grip is made in the Mamluk style which gives it an exotic look. Mamluk sabres have been used in Asia for centuries and exceeded their European counterparts by far. Similar sabres were worn since 1830 by Dutch lancers in The Netherlands and the Dutch Indies (inspired by the British initiative).
