These swords were designed during the period when the British army was continuing to argue on the merits of the ‘cut’ versus the ‘thrust’ of British cavalry blades. The hilt design was first introduced for the 1864 pattern, this was primarily a new hilt mated with the existing 1853 pattern blade (34 ½” inches long 1 ¼” wide). The Maltese Cross motif cut into the knuckle guard is a distinctive feature of these swords. British manufacturer’s struggled to keep pace with the demand for these swords and many were produced with German made blades (see page 101 of World Swords by Withers).

The ricasso is marked on both sides with WD and inspection marks including '95 (1895) and '16 (1916) dates. The knuckle guard has the correct Maltese cross motif and is WD marked.
