….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.
if you cant appreciate hermione granger you can get the fuck out
The 1822 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword has a “Gothic” style pierced hilt, so-called after its resemblance to the shapes of windows in Gothic architecture and the “s-shaped” folding guard. There is a Royal cipher for Victoria Regina (reigning from 1838 to 1901) placed within an oval hilt cartouche.
It has a brass scabbard with two suspension rings. The grip is covered in grey rayfish skin. The brass hilt has a folding guard for a better grip and comfort of the hand. The sword heatures a slightly curved and double-edged blade engraved on the full length with military and folia attributes.
Apparently, as a fighting weapon, the 1822 Pattern was rather unsatisfactory, the blade being far too weak and the hilt bars affording little protection.
When the 1845 Pattern blade was introduced, officers were not required to immediately change to the new pattern. They were allowed to carry the old pipe back sword blade until it became obsolete.
