German Hunting Saber, 16th and 17th cen.

This elegant weapon is the replica of a sabre used by deer hunters in Germany. The original weapon is cataloged as number A716 in the Wallace Collection in London. The original sabre is inscribed with the number "1658" but its date is approximately a century earlier. This imposing sabre was used during parforce hunts for one purpose only. After the dog pack had put the hart at bay, a hunter cut the tendons in the hart's back legs to keep it from escaping. This curved blade cut the tendons more cleanly than a heavy sword would have. There is even a special verb in German for cutting a hart's tendons: "hessen." The most important member of the hunting party would then kill the prey. This well-balanced, well-tempered saber comes with a scabbard and will make a worthy addition to any collection.

German Hunting Saber, 16th and 17th century

This German hunting sabre is an extremely elegant, finely balanced medieval weapon. It has a short, wooden grip. The comparatively long, riveted pommel and the two short fullers in the single-edged blade deliver its lively feel. The S-shaped crossguard swings up to form a graceful knuckle bow and a side guard ring keeps the hunter's hand firmly on the grip. The German hunting sabre comes with a leather scabbard.
