Additional information

This replica of the British Royal Artillery Gunners Sword has a blade forged from 1095 high carbon steel; replicated at the base of the spine is the manufacturers markings as seen on an original example (DAWES BIRMM – William and Samuel Dawes of Birmingham). The hilt is crafted from brass and the wooden grip is bound in black leather. The sword is paired with a leather scabbard complete with a brass chape and locket.

This British Royal Artillery Sword was the sidearm of British Artillery crews in the early 1800s and these swords saw action in the Peninsular War, Waterloo and the War of 1812. Unique for its wide and straight-bladed design, the sword was likely inspired by the French Imperial Guard Infantry Sword. The United States would borrow heavily from the design of this British sword when creating the their own US Light Artillerymans Saber during the War of 1812 which essentially was a marginally modified hilt design coupled with a curved saber blade.
