Egyptian Cavalry Sword by Wilkinson Sword Co.

Sort of a British sword and sort of not! This is one of the rarest Wilkinson troopers’ swords you can find – made on contract for the Egyptian Army when it was under British control, some time at the end of the 19th century. Sword collectors will instantly recognise the shape as that of a French M1822 light cavalry sabre, which the Egyptians wanted for their cavalry – so Wilkinson made them. This is one of the only ways that you’ll get a French/US styled cavalry trooper’s sword made by Wilkinson and this example is in wonderful condition. The blade is perfect, like new. The maker’s mark is crisp. The hilt is rock solid and in equally great condition. The brass is aged, but perfect. The shark skin is 100% perfect. The grip wire is all there and tight.
