Details

Possibly based upon the French Model 1829 Artillery Sword, the US Model 1840 Light Artillery Sabre (also known as the Horse Artillery Sabre) has a brass hilt with twisted brass wire wrapped black leather grip. The scabbard is steel.

As with many models of sword, this was carried by both CSA and Union soldiers with minor variations in markings between these.

These fine reproduction swords are faithful copies of those used by the United States and Confederate Army and Navy during the Civil War. Made with excellent attention to detail, the hand forged blades are a tempered high carbon steel. The handles are wire wrapped leather, and the scabbards are made of leather, steel and brass. Despite their affordable price, these swords are an excellent, high quality reproduction.
