It's been around for years in the attic and I would love to find out where it's from. Thank you.

    Name it? Er, Jim...call it Jim...Jim, the Cavalry Sabre. – KillingTime Nov 6 '17 at 22:15

    It would be useful if you could give dimensions. – Lars Bosteen Nov 6 '17 at 22:28
  • "It's been around for years in the attic." Why might it have historical significance. Is one of the users, perhaps a member of your family famous? Or at least was it "known" to have been used on a famous battle? – Tom Au Nov 7 '17 at 0:48
  • Very similar to my Dad's air force saber.... – Mark C. Wallace Nov 7 '17 at 1:28

    I agree with Lars, dimensions may be crucial to identify this item. – justCal Nov 7 '17 at 18:26

It looks like a cutlass or klewang to me. I can't see the actual length, but it seems too short for a cavalry sabre. Unless there were pony regiments somewhere. ;-)

Google on 'Dutch Marechaussee klewang'. They seem quite similar, but no fancy decorated blades, with a different point. Otherwise, very close.
