The Model 1914 Cavalry Saber was the last operational Sword issued by the Royal Army. Although withdrawn from standard operational use in the early 30s, it has become one of several sword patterns authorized as ceremonial weapons in the Nachmerian armed forces. It is especially popular with tank and mechanized infantry officers who see themselves as the descendants of horse riding cavalry. Many officers choose to carry the sabre with them to combat, and the Model 1914 is often seen rigged near the commander hatches of Nachmerian AFVs. The Model 1914 is also the sword worn by HRM David Kashat during ceremonies.

The Model 1914 saber features a large, basket-shaped hilt mounting a straight, double-edged, thrusting blade designed for use by heavy cavalry. It was designed in accordance with contemporary Nachmerian cavalry tactics emphasizing the the use of the point over the edge. The sharpened back edge makes it much easier to withdraw from a body than would be the case if the blade were single edged. In the charge with the point, all the energy of the horse and weight of the horse and rider is focused on one sharp point of impact.

In the late 1990s Schwerpunkt acquired the rights of production for the sword (which was one of the last government manufactured items in Nachmere). It now offers the Model 1914 in two configurations. The standard model is nearly identical to the original Model 1914, although slightly lighter. The second is a highly decorative ceremonial version, with gilt hilt and fittings and engraved ivory grips. The scabbard is made of canvas and wood.
