23mm Light Artillery Blade
Our 23mm pattern light artillery blade is also modeled to near exact specifications of the curved British 1821 pattern heavy cavalry blade. I prefer the lighter blade for it’s maneuverability, but, to each their own. Again, we chose this curved variant of “pipe back” blade over the straighter version of the same era for the same reasons as the 25mm. The total length of this blade is 32.5″, 82.5 cm. This blade has a 3mm rolled edge, “Y” or “hollow-ground” cross section with a swelled tip that measures 1/2″, 13mm long by .2″ , 5mm wide. The center of flex is centered in the tip third of the blade and the threads are of grade 8 M6 x 1.25.
This blade is only offered with a spatulated tip.
Other specifics include:
- 3mm rolled edges that require little to no burr maintenance.
- 6″ long, 1/4″ thick x 5/8″ wide tang with M6 x 1.25 thread.
- Polished finish.
- Rubber tip sold separately.
