Caucasian Falchion Shashka

The shashka originated among the mountain tribes of the Caucasus in the 12th century. The Russian word shashka comes from the Adyghe word Adyghe, which means "long knife". Most of the Russian and Ukrainian Cossacks adopted this sabre-like weapon. It gradually replaced the sabre in all cavalry units except hussars during the 19th century. In 1881 shashka became official weapon in Russian troops and police.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
