An original American WW1 1913 pattern 'Patton' 1914 dated American Cavalry Trooper's Sabre complete with a metal dress scabbard. The sword was based on a design by the future General George S.

RARE, WW2 Era U.S. Manufactured Dutch Klewang M1940 Short Sword By Milsco & Leather Scabbard With Integral Belt Loop. Sn 11504 - 11504
An original WW2 era U.S. manufactured Dutch Klewang M1940 designed after the European-manufactured M1898/M1911 models. The M1940 was manufactured in the U.S. by Milsco (Milwaukee Saddlery Company) beginning in 1940. There is hardly a difference between the various models of Klewang over its 50 odd years of production by the various manufacturers and the pattern has stayed virtually the same. All Klewang models had a pierced hilt cup and clipped tip. After the Netherlands couldn't full fill its contract to Milsco in 1941, having been over run by the Germans, the U.S. Navy purchased the excess inventory of cutlasses and then sold them after the war as Navy surplus. Milsco shipped a number of Klewangs to the Netherlands East Indies just prior to or right after the outbreak of WWII. Many of these Klewangs ended up being used in the East Indies during the colonial uprising. This American made M1940 Klewang has a 24” curved blade with correct clipped tip and fuller. It measures 29 ½” overall, has undamaged brass riveted wood grips and correct steel pierced cup hilt. The ricasso of the blade is stamped by the manufacturer ‘MILSCO’. The Klewang is complete with its original leather scabbard with brass throat mount and chape. The scabbard has an integral riveted belt loop. All leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. Price for this rare American made Klewang includes UK delivery. Sn 11504
