Most armies, leading up to and during WWII discarded cavalry for tanks. The Russians however kept an effective fighting force of cavalry regiments on the front lines in WWII. The usefulness of a fast-striking force across the vast steppes of Russia that did not require precious gasoline was not to be overlooked. This military production sword is of the Shasqua form – popularized by the Eurasian sabers of the legendary Cossacks. This type of sword was adopted by the Russian cavalry dragoons in 1882 and its design saw use through WWII.

This replica from Universal Swords of India features reproduced Red Army markings that would have been seen on production blades. The stamping features the Hammer and Sickle of the CCCP with a 1934 production date. Soviet state symbols are featured on the pommel and the sword is adorned with additional Cyrillic marking throughout.

The blade is of tempered carbon steel with a deep fuller. The hilt and scabbard accents are of brass and the grip is of painted carved wood. The scabbard is wood-core covered in black leather. The Shaska is typically worn edge-side up, like a katana.
