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.
