Cavalry sword p/1840

has brass guard with three side bars and wooden handle. The blade
is very unusual - it is narrow and thin, but completely unfullered
and therefore rather heavy. The sharpening began only in the second
third of the blade, which was obviously designed for thrusting and
not for cutting.

Blade length: 87.5 cm
width: 28 mm
maker: Toledo factory
