Day 6 and here are the rare and beautiful 1786 Pattern style sword. These two swords are both pre-regulation in the style of the 1786, these are a vague pattern rather than a strict model. The ebony handled example is rather sturdy and hefty with an amazing balance in the hand, the ivory hilted example feels like more of a chopper but is interestingly named to the cartouche, a rare thing on a sword of this age!
