Windlass US Model 1860 Cavalry Officer's Sabre

Availability: Out of stock

$320.00

Quick Overview

Almost identical to the enlisted version, the Model 1860 Cavalry officer's sword differs only in the adornment on the hilt and acid etched blade. This sword has a decorative brass hilt with dark leather wrap, bound with twisted brass wire. The blade is acid etched tempered carbon steel. The sword comes complete with a metal scabbard with brass fittings.

Details

Introduced in 1860, the Model 1860 Light Cavalry Sabre was intended to replace the Model 1840 Heavy Cavalry sabre. In fact this transition would not take place until after the Civil War. The Model 1860 was not particularly well received. Designed to correct many of the shortcomings of the Model 1840 it did not differ greatly, the blade being slightly smaller and straighter, and the grip differently shaped.

Almost identical to the enlisted version, this sword differs only in the adornment on the hilt and acid etched blade. This sword has a decorative brass hilt with dark leather wrap, bound with twisted brass wire. The blade is acid etched tempered carbon steel. The sword comes complete with a metal scabbard with brass fittings.

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.
