1925 Royal Air Force Officers Sword and Scabbard

1925 Royal Air Force Officers Sword and Scabbard

The current regulation Royal Air Force Officers’ sword as set forth by the Air Ministry in 1925. The sword boasts a highly polished, hand forged single edged high carbon steel blade. The gold-plated hilt is elegantly stamped with the emblem bearing cartouche of the Royal Air Force.

Defined by a beautifully crafted gold-plated eagles head, the sword hilt is traditionally coated in stretched, dyed and age dried ray skin. The scabbard is made of black buffalo rawhide and fitted with gold plated belt mounts.
