Honourable Artillery Company Officers Sword and Scabbard

Honourable Artillery Company Officers Sword and Scabbard

The Honourable Artillery Company was incorporated via Royal Charter in 1537 by King Henry VIII and is considered the second oldest military corps in the world. The Honourable Artillery Company Sword was originally modelled on the Guards sword.

The Honourable Artillery Company Sword hosts a plethora of distinguishing characteristics, none more prominent than their own badge embellished into the hilt. The high carbon steel blade is intricately engraved with unique design incorporating the Honourable Artillery Badge and that of the City of London.

The Honourable Artillery Officer’s Sword can be carried in a Sam Browne leather scabbard with plated steel mouthpiece for service wear or in a nickel-plated steel scabbard for full dress occasions.
