American Revolution Saber
Click to Review
The American Colonists were, like most of Europe, amorous of the dashing French Hussar. The handmade hilt of this American saber reflects their admiration of the 1700's French style. This well-balanced, fast sword was designed for the mounted fighter. Solid steel hilt with spiral pattern carved hardwood grip is married to an effective 1085 high carbon, well tempered blade. Comes with black leather scabbard with steel mounts. This attractive sword can be seen in the book Swords and Blades of the American Revolution

I love this Saber! You can tell they took the time to craft an amazing edged weapon! From the solid wood hilt, double fullers, to the toe of the blade arrived to me flawless! When i say solid wood hilt, i mean it. Its not two halves of a wood grip and glued together over the tang with a seam. Its a solid piece of wood, hollowed just enough to slip over the tang. There were no short cuts taken on making this edged weapon. The scabbard was also a wonderful accessory thst came paired with the saber. Its leather wrapped with a double stitch running up the length of one side of the scabbard. Steel upper and lower hooks and scabbard tip protector finish off the whole package. The shipping was very fast and the saber came to me factory oiled which was awesome! Any one that knows sabers/swords know carbon steel oxidizes, so they took the time to put a quality oil on the blade. The saber came well protected in shipping with huge bubble wrap, saber and scabbard individually wrapped in plastic and foam between them. They also took the time to put on a plastc toe guard to keep the toe of the saber safe in shipping. If theres any drawback i can think of its the fact that the blade has a little more flex than i was expecting. Not much, but it was just something i thought when examining it. Im not surprised though, beings that its such a long saber with a double fuller. Im sure the circa 1775 saber this is copied from has the same amount of flex, if not more. To conclude, this saber is gorgeous, well crafted, and museum quality. Incredible piece of craftsmanship! Thank you Atlanta Cutlery and Windlass! -Donald Reisdorf
