Alright, thanks.Ninja_Stoker said:It was fairly common for young Officers to purchase a sword in days of yore - it's not uncommon for the family to pass one down through the generations.
Those from more affluent backgrounds may have a sword bought to mark the event by their families and sometimes they may be awarded as a prize.
If you're thinking of buying your own- there's no need too as you can always borrow one on the very rare occasion you need one, they cost upwards of Â£1000 for a decent one.
Short of lopping the top off a Champagne bottle at a wedding, they serve little other functional use.
