Prussian Saber, year 1852

In the mid 1800's the world's armies were in a race to field the most effective cavalry arms. The debates raged regarding the merits of the lance over the saber or vice versa. Additionally there were further disagreements, with some favoring the point-oriented weapon and others the edge. The Prussian response was to equip their exalted cavalry with a saber that tried to strike a perfect balance. Roll-forged from high carbon steel with a spring temper, it offered a slightly curved blade with a pipe back (spine) that ran down its length to reinforce the spear point. It had a remarkably effective, pierced basket guard and a sharkskin-wrapped grip. It was a light, handy saber that cut efficiently and was diabolical in the thrust because of the added stiffness of its pipe back cross-section. Cold Steel's version, like many of their swords, is rooted in the experiences acquired by their President Lynn C. Thompson, who fences regularly with 7075 aluminum and steel replicas.
