Civilian Saber

The cavalry saber reached the height of its popularity during the Napoleonic wars. It was a very effective weapon of war, used both by officers on foot and troopers mounted on horseback. But it had one drawback: It was much too cumbersome for civilian use. Even the lightest models were too long for practice daily carry. Additionally, the multiple bar hilt (which protected the hand from an opposing blade) had the potential to catch, snag, or hook on objects in passing. The solution was to scale the military saber down to about the size and weight of a Small Sword, modify the knuckle bow and add a folding guard. This modification allowed the civilian saber to be worn much closer to the body on lighter belts and baldrics. Worn for self-defense, or as a sign of authority, it shortly became a common military dress accessory, even to this day.

Civilian Saber

Cold Steel's modern interpretation of the civilian or military dress saber is hand-forged out of 1055 high carbon steel with a hard spring temper and sports a narrow, modestly curved blade that terminates in a wickedly effective point. Stout enough to defend against much larger weapons, yet light enough to be fenced elegantly from the fingers and wrist like a Small Sword, it can outmaneuver more ponderous blades while remaining ready to deliver a telling blow or lightning quick thrust.

Featuring a highly detailed British lion motif on the hilt and matching folding guard, as well as a luxurious leather and brass wire grip, this saber is elegant enough for the most formal occasions and sure to endure for generations.
