A lightweight sword, the 1912 has a thick, stiffened T-shaped blade spine. It flexes just enough to avoid breakage in a high-speed thrust, but it remains stiff enough to ensure that the blade drives home. The tip is a ??spear-point?? style - sharp on both ends and tapered to ease the blade into an enemy with frightful ease. While the last third of the sword was sharpened on both sides to allow for cutting, this is largely a token arrangement, as the sword would have been a poor slashing and cutting blade at best.
With its long blade, the 1912 is best used as in the manner of a lance while the horse charges. The only drawback and a point of criticism for the sword is that this manner of fighting has a risk of too deeply embedding the blade into the foe, forcing the cavalryman to drop the sword in the pass or risk breaking his wrist.
The large, bowl-like guard gives excellent protection to the hand without making the sword heavy and the ergonomic, pistol-like grip has a groove for the thumb on the top of the grip to maximize point and direction control of the blade. The weighted pommel helps to balance the blade, keeping it quick and maneuverable.
This 1912 Pattern Cavalry Sword has an unsharpened blade of high carbon steel embossed with the symbols and devices of the British Empire. The guard and pommel are of steel and the grip is wrapped with brown leather inlaid with twisted wire. The scabbard is of wood wrapped with brown leather. It has a steel throat and chape.
