Pair of training cutlass/sabers, circa 1870. Identified from illustrations in equipment and training manuals of the era, I've never seen any other examples in photographs, museums, or collections. Single fullered blade with rounded tip and 1mm edge. Has some spring and flex to the blade, but is quite tough and robust. Grip is wood, basket hilt is blackened steel. These swords are in excellent condition for their age and intended purpose - no cuts or nicks in the blade edges at all.
