Historic design at a famous price! Many people consider a saber to be a curved cavalry sword, but in fact there are many variations on the blade shape. Straight blade sabers emphasized the use of the point over the edge, and this style could be found among the wild horsemen of the steppes and the heavy cavalry of the Napoleonic era. Our classic cavalry saber uses this straight blade design to provide you with a superb model. Measuring 27 1/4" overall, our sword features a 21 7/8" stainless steel blade and a hardwood handle with brass guard and pommel. This item includes a top quality leather sheath. This is an absolute bargain!
