US 1860 Heavy Cavalry Saber
Saber - 1860 Heavy Cavalry
Manufacture ID: 88HCS
At the outbreak of the American Civil War there were two types of sabers issued to the Federal Cavalry: "light" and "heavy". The light version was popular but the heavy model dubbed the "Old Wrist Breaker" was the one worth owning as it was a superior weapon. Its 36" blade offered big reach advantages over most sabers and its substantial weight gave it the leverage to easily crush bones and sever limbs or even a head with a single blow. The brass guard had three bars to protect the hand and the grip was wire bound leather and capped with a sturdy pommel. In its double ringed steel scabbard it could be easily attached to a saddle or to a belt.
After examining and handling a number of original 1860 Heavy Cavalry Sabers we decided to make our own reproduction with a few improvements. Our blade is made from 1050 High Carbon Steel with a hard spring temper and will pass the British Proof Test.
