The British Model 1845 sword saw action in many of the major wars of the 19th Century. British officers carried it at their side to the Crimean War, The Boer War and the Zulu, New Zealand, Australian and Indian colonial wars. Outside of British hands, many were sold to well-off Southern gentlemen of the Confederate States of America. One of whom is documented as paying $225 dollars for such a sword! No small sum in such times. Britain would not replace it until the introduction of the 1897 Infantry Sword.

This British 1845 Infantry Officer’s Sword has an unsharpened blade of tempered high carbon steel. The blade is richly embossed with the iconography of the British royalty and military. The hilt is of brass and features the royal cypher prominently on the guard. The grip is of hardened black leather with twisted copper wire inlay. The scabbard is of steel with two steel hanging rings.
