US 1860 Cavalry Saber with Wood Grip

(3 customer reviews)


Additional information

This US 1860 cavalry saber has a high carbon steel blade and a hilt of brass. The grip is carved wood with twisted brass wire. The scabbard is constructed from steel and is fitted with a pair of hanging rings.

This saber is well-suited for costume, decoration and reenactment. The untempered blade makes it unsuitable for cutting usage.

Please Note: This saber is not listed as battle-ready because the steel has a softer temper to it. Though it is durably constructed, the blade will flex and return true when slight force and bends are applied, but it is liable to take a bend when the blade is bent at more extreme angles. A soft-tempered blade such as this can stand up to light cutting and light use, but is not recommended for heavy usage.

This sword is on final closeout and may have minor blemishes, loose parts or other minor issues. They are being sold as is below cost. Minor rust, pitting, dents or scratches may be present.

    These sabers are worth $20USD. The scabbard is carbon steel, and the spear pointed blade is very pointy. I would call this model saber a mid-19th Century Cavalry Saber. It looks similar to a US 1840/1860 Transitional Saber available from many ACW saber retailers, that is, with the exception of the aforementioned spear tipped point. If it were sold by the pound it would still be well worth the money. 🙂

    Well worth the price, however it’s price point conveys it’s quality. The blade is wavy and mine has a bend at the point, there is a hot spot on the handle where the knuckle bow connects to the pommel. These are not that big of a deal, when I sharpen the blade I should be able to straighten the point and I should be able to file down the spot on the handle. Nothing I can do to correct the waviness. I don’t plan on doing any cutting with it. Overall even with it’s draw backs it’s a nice looking blade and you can’t beat the price.

    Pretty decent for the price point. Blade has a wavy grind and two hot spots on the back of the grip right at the base of the hand guard. Fairly minor things for a sword that will spend most of its life hanging on a wall.

    Nothing rattles, everything is snug and tight which is awesome

    For the price point you cant hardly beat it, definitely happy to add this to my collection
