Household Cavalry Life Guards Officers Sword and Scabbard

The 1892 pattern sword is borne by the Life Guards and the Blues and Royal of the British Household Cavalry on state occasions.

A pure cut-and-thrust heavy and single-edged blade, integrated with an ornately chased and pierced bowl of nickel-plated steel. A brass regimental badge is attached to it and fixed with brass studs and embellishments. It is a gothic hilted sword and the pommel begins in a brass tip.

The steel scabbard is nickel-plated and carries brass polished, scallop-shaped mounts and a shoe.
