Sabres: The Infantry Officers' Pattern 1865 Sabre (Fig. 61B )


This one happened to be the dragoon officers' Pattern 1841 sabre, albeit enclosed in the iron scabbard, similar to the cavalry pattern 1827 sabre one. The mass was downwards of 1,500 gr. In 1865 the sabre was made all the generals' and officers' regulation weapon, who used to carry the dragoon officers Pattern 1841 sabre with an infantry sword-knot earlier on. In 1881 it came in for a replacement with the dragoon officers' Pattern 1881 shashka (shasqua) and was thus eventually removed ("phased out") from equipage.
