Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Saber (Officer) 3D Model
18th C. English
Catalogue Number: OC044
An example of the classic Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Saber, paired with both its original scabbard and sword knot. The Pattern 1796 was the second in a series of attempts to standardize the swords used by British cavalry at the end of the 18th Century. Replacing the earlier Pattern 1788, this blade has a highly accentuated curve, making it excellent in the cut. This particular piece is highly decorated, with a blue and gilt blade featuring a Royal Cypher with crown, drums and banners, as well as extensive foliage across the blued scrollwork background. The grip is composed of shark skin bound by wire, enhancing the user’s grip should the sword become wet. The sword knot would have been worn around the wrist, prevent the weapon from being lost in the case of it coming out of the hand during use.
