China has a history of social discord, which has resulted in wars, revolutions, and other events which led to the creation of some unique weaponry. The Chinese Saber, for example, is just that sort of weapon: a horseman’s saber that is equally adaptable by foot soldiers in the field. Our Chinese Saber is hand forged from high carbon steel. The blade features a single ¾ length fuller and is moderately curved along its length, terminating in an upswept point, making it ideal for cutting and slashing without giving up its thrusting potential. The hilt features a solid brass disc guard, deeply engraved in the classical style. The handle has a hardwood core and is braided with black silk cord and capped with a brass bolster and pommel. The scabbard is fashioned in hardwood and covered in black leather and features brass decorative fittings. While doubtlessly a Chinese Saber in style, this sword could easily work for any Steppe warrior re-enactor and is particularly well-suited to Mongolian, Chinese, Manchurian re-enactors, and martial artists.
