1815 French Officer's Saber

It is after the original piece perfectly balanced and offers a moderately curved blade, a sharp useful point and an excellent three bar hilt. As a cavalry weapon, it was more than suitable for use in a charge and performed equally well when fighting at close range in the mêlée. It was, however, the striking appearance of this saber that really inspired Cold Steel®. From the highly polished steel and elegant etchings on the blade to the intricately decorated solid brass furniture and hilt, it is truly a vision to behold. More information...

The army of Napoleon was celebrated for its organization, despite the countless variations in uniforms and equipment. While the rank and file soldiers were issued the standard accouterments of the day, the officer's ranks were composed of a somewhat vainglorious lot who sought ways to distinguish themselves in both dress and styling of their weaponry. Huge numbers of differently styled edged weapons were issued and some were even custom-made to order. Among the best examples of these special sabers was one forged for Lancer Officers.
This faithful reproduction comes with a highly polished, battle-ready blade forged from 1055 high carbon steel, a wire-wrapped leather handle, a polished stainless steel scabbard and a dazzling, highly decorated three bar hilt.

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
