Description
 
Absolutely epic sabre with even rarer scabbard. Awesome.
Designated (I think!) 'Tulwar Pattern'. Maker marked Cockburn & Co.
Masses of stamps. Scabbard is 100% fantastic, stamped 1918 with WD stamp. Stamps to both sides of the quillion.
The grip has been handled more than one can imagine. The missing section of the grip must have happened at about the time the sword was made as it is exactly the same texture, colour and smoothness as the rest of the grip. There is a 2 stamped to the inside of the guard.
The scabbard has got to be really rare. Leather over wood, it is a beast and is in perfect condition despite a bit of wear. The sword fits snuggly and remains when inverted vertically.
The blade is great, in the style of the 1796 Light Cavalry. Period sharpening. No major nicks to the blade. The point may have been marginally modified to give it more of a thrusting option.
I'm guessing that the native cavalry were thought to be more suited than hacking than thrusting, hence the design of this sword over the 1908.
Will be sorry to see it go.
Excitingly, I have the officer version of this sword by Wilkinson (No scabbard), in the process of being touched up. Could be a good option for a pair!
