The cavalry saber reached an incomparable level of popularity during the napoleonic wars An efficient sword with somewhat heroic overtones it was used by officers on foot as well as troopers mounted on horseback It had one drawback for civilian use formal or ceremonial occasions it was a bit cumbersome even awkward as even the lightest models were too heavy and long for practicality additionally the multiple bar hilt which effectively protected one s hand from an opposing blade would occasionally catch snag or hook on objects it touched in passing The solution was to scale the military saber down to about the size and weight of a small sword and replace the hilt with a spring loaded folding mechanism equipped with a single knuckle bow This modification allowed the civilian saber to avoid snags and be worn much closer to the body on the lighter belts and baldrics favored for civilian and military dress attire It turned out to be a very effective tool as well Worn for self defense or as a sign of authority it shortly became a common military dress accessory even to this day Now Cold Steel would like to offer you our interpretation of the civilian or military dress saber The hilt features a highly detailed british lion motif and comes complete with a matching folding guard that locks to the scabbard For contrast the grip is made of rich black leather and bound in highly polished brass wire Complementing the hilt is an equally rich yet sturdy scabbard Made of thick black leather and heavily reinforced with a polished brass chape throat and hanging rings it s elegant enough for the most formal occasions yet stout enough to endure hard wear and last for generations But you ve got to draw the blade from the scabbard to fully appreciate the genius of our civilian saber Hand forged out of 1050 high carbon steel with a hard spring temper it sports a narrow modestly curved 32 blade that terminates in a wickedly effective point primarily thought of as a thrusting tool It s stout enough to defend against much larger swords yet light enough to be fenced 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
