This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

This Russian Shashka sword has a blade forged from high carbon steel; the bolster and pommel are brass and the grip is carved from polished wood. Included is a wood-core scabbard which is bound in leather and completed with brass fittings. One hanging ring is brass, the other is steel. The Shasqua is usually worn edge-up in a manner similar to a katana.

Made famous by the Cossack cavalrymen who wielded these distinctive, swift-slashing sabers, this Shashqa is reproduced from the swords produced for Red Army Cossack regiments as denoted by the star, hammer and sickle on the pommel.

Cavalry may have been thought of as obsolete in WWII, but the Russian Army understood the value of a fast-moving and largely self-sustaining cavalry force which could rapidly range over the vast steppes without needing gasoline in a war theater where supply lines would be stretched. Knowing that the supply lines of their foes would be overburdened in such a vast landscape, Cossack cavalrymen could harass and intercept reinforcements and supplies at will, as well as pounce on isolated forces who were low on equipment and morale.
