This saber was widely used by the British and their Prussian allies under General Blucher in the Battle of Waterloo. The blade was derived from the ferocious Indian Talwar and was reviled by the French who protested its use due to the horribly destructive wounds it inflicted. In fact, this saber was so successful as a cutting weapon, that the German Cavalry continued to use it right up to the beginning of the 20th century!
If you want a combat quality saber that will pass the British Proof Test and is fully capable of tremendous shearing cuts this is a must have! It comes with a sharpened forward edge and all metal scabbard. 1055 Carbon steel blade.
