During the American Civil War, there were two types of saber issued to the Cavalry: one light and one heavy. The light version was popular, but the heavy model, affectionately dubbed the Old Wrist Breaker was considered by many to be the one to carry into battle! With a lengthy 36" blade, it offered distinctive reach advantages over most blades, and its added weight gave it superior leverage and power. Taking inspiration from antique blades in private collections, our saber is made from 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper that is capable of passing the famous British Proof Test. This beautiful sword is sold complete with a double ringed steel scabbard which can easily be attached to a saddle or belt.
