Cold Steel 1908 English Cavalry Saber 88ECS

What makes the ideal cavalry saber? In the charge you need a narrow, stiff blade with a sharp point to impale your enemies. In the mAlAe, on an immobile horse, you need a wide, curved, semi flexible blade for cutting and slashing. m The British pondered this dilemma and in 1908, settled on a saber that favored the thrust. It had a narrow 35” long blade, a thick cross section and a sharp point. To protect the hand, wrist, and forearm, it had a superb bowl shaped guard and a grip that automatically brought the point ”in line” for the perfect thrust. It was easy to carry too, as its scabbard had two rings for suspending it from the saddle or attaching it to a belt or baldric. It was issued throughout the British Empire and it is still used, with minor changes, even today. Our President, Lynn C. Thompson, became quite enamored with this saber after fencing extensively with it for many years and has brought fourth Cold Steel’s interpretation of this extraordinary weapon. It’s modeled on the original lines, with just a marginally lighter gauge steel on the bowl guard (improving balance and handling) and a more durable black plastic grip. In our tests, this saber has proven ideal for ground combat (it can be fenced like a rapier) as well as in the saddle and can deliver a frightfully effective cut as well as a lethal thrust.

Cold Steel US 1860 Heavy Cavalry Saber Steel Scab

At the outbreak of the American Civil War, there were two types of sabers issued to the Federal Cavalry: “”light”” and “”heavy””. The light version was popular, but the heavy model, dubbed the “”Old Wrist Breaker”” was the one worth owning, as it was a superior weapon. Its 36″” blade offered big reach advantages over most sabers, and its substantial weight gave it the leverage to easily crush bones and sever limbs or even a head with a single blow. The brass guard had three bars to protect the hand and the grip was wire bound leather and capped with a sturdy pommel. In its double ringed, steel scabbard, it could be easily attached to a saddle or to a belt.
