A good late victorian example of a native troopers sabre by Mole. These sabres were and interesting military and economic item, using the most popular British guard and adding a heavily curved cut centric sabre blade that aped the tulwar still used by the native troops. This allowed the British to have uniform native cavalry as well as being able to pay a British comapny to equip them, essentially allowing the government to stimulate its own economy. These swords are just incredible in the hand, a great combination of size, cutting power and hand protection. It appears these were largely made by Mole around 1880. This sword can be yours for £425 or best offer.
