I'm on the market searching for a scabbard for an original british trooper's 1821 pattern light cavalry sabre. I would naturaly prefer an original scabbard if anybody's got one lying around to sell, but at this point a nice fitting modern one would do.
Also, I was led to believe by the great Matt Easton that the 1853 pattern LC sabre has an identical blade.
My sabre's measurements are as follows:
Total length: 101cm
Blade length: 87cm
Handle length: 14cm
Blade width at the forte: 32mm
Blade thickness at forte: 9mm
The blade has a curvature of about 10mm at the most at around 40 to 45cm from the guard.
I had already posted a few pictures of the sword in question a few years ago and so here is the repost for ilustration
My gratitude in advance gents!
