The British Infantry Officer did not carry a regulation infanty sword until 1786. Before this officers were responsible for choosing their own swords. Whilst swords with Lion Head pommels were a popular choice, a little rarer were those with horse head pommels, perhaps alluding to the White Horse of Hannover of the Georgian monarchs.

Our British Officer’s Horse Head Sword features and a tempered AISI 1065 high carbon steel blade with etched decoration. The ornate brass hilt features a wood grip that is wrapped with brass wire. The scabbard is made from brass and features two fixed hanging rings.
