Canadian Military Swords

William Scully Ltd. supplies military carbon steel swords to units across Canada. Our swords are the sealed patterns held at the Department of National Defence and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. We are very proud of the fact that Scully swords have been carried by Canadian Officer’s for over 140 years.

All swords marked William Scully Ltd. are to full D.N.D. and R.C.M.P. specification. All blades are hand-forged and tested to the requirements of fighting blades in the 18th and 19th centuries. Blades are flexed out of center 6". When released the blade must spring back into correct alignment before receiving the brass inset proof (star), that denotes correct tempering and balance. (William Scully Ltd. does not supply stainless steel decorative display swords, as stainless steel has a low tensile strength and fractures on impact.)

Carbon steel blade: Carbon - 0.5% to 0.6%, Manganese - 0.6% to 0.9%, Silicon - 0.15% to 0.35%, Phosphors - maximum 0.04%, Sulphur - maximum 0.04% The grade of the blade steel is between AISI - 1050 and 1060, with increased amounts of Manganese and Silicone to enhance strength and flexibility. The blades are hardened to between 48 to 52 Rockwell, depending on the thickness, width and use of the individual blade. The hardening and tempering of the carbon steel blade is critical for strength.

All blades are forged from a single billet of carbon steel, hand ground to shape, hardened, tempered, commercially polished to a mirror finish, before they are finally acid-etched with Her Majesty's Cipher and the Canadian Shield in the Center of the Dominion Coat of Arms. All hilts are stamped, and all grips are carved wood, wrapped in sharkskin, then wired with gold or silver wire.

Épées et fourreaux militaires canadiens

Nos épées sont conformes aux exigences du Département de la Défense Nationale et celles de la GRC.

Lame d'acier au carbone: Carbone (0.5% à 0.6%), Manganèse (0.6% à 0.9%), Silicone (0.15% à 0.35%), Phosphores (moins de 0.04%), Sulphure (moins de 0.04%).
L'acier au carbone AISI 1050 et 1060 de nos lames est additionné de manganese et de silicone pour une résistance et une flexibilité supérieures. Les lames sont endurcies de 48 à 52 Rockwell, selon leur épaisseur, largeur et l'usage de chacune. Toutes nos épées sont testées selon les standards des lames de combat du 18e et 19e siècles. Pour ce faire, la lame est fléchie de 6 pouces de part et d'autre; celle-ci doit reprendre sa forme initiale avant d'y apposer notre sceau d'approbation. La lame est gravée à l'eau-forte de sa Majesté et le bouclier canadien au centre de l'armoirie Dominion. La poignée est étampée et la prise de celle-ci est faite de véritable peau de requin.

Si vous êtes de passage à Montréal, vous êtes les bienvenus à notre salle de montre; choisissez parmi notre sélection d'épées et fourreaux assortis. Nous offrons également une gamme complète de ceinturons et dragonnes.
