SOLD – French Officer Superior Officer Sabre Steel Hilt

This is a remarkable example of a superior officer sabre with a non regulation reinfirced steel hilt sometimes referred to as “North African Army” type.The blade is marked to an unknown maker “AO” and is very high quality, wiht a very solid hilt, contrasting copper wire and horn grip. The multi fullered blade was actually service sharpened and the whole sword weighs around 800 grs.

A very nice example of this simple yet beautiful style of sword made for battle.
