British 1895 Bugler / Drummer’s Sword


In stock

Regiment musicians in the Victorian British Army and the volunteer regiments carried their own short sword as a defensive sidearm. Though these are typically referred to as a sword, these Bugler’s Swords have a size and length that is more like a large dirk or a  smaller short sword in size. There were several variants in the 19th century and these followed a Neo-Gothic styling complete with the cypher of the reigning monarch at the guard.

This replica has a blade of 1055 high carbon steel which is solidly mounted and peened into a hilt of finely cast brass. It is paired with a thick leather sheath which is completed with brass fittings.
