Originally copied from an earlier French issue saber and manufactured in the North and in Europe for the lads in blue. It evokes the unflinching bravery of Antietam, Manassas, Gettysburg.

Our excellent reproduction is hand-made and ready for use. The hand-forged blade of the M-1860 Light Cavalry Saber is British military spec steel that will flex over 20° and return to true. The leather handle is wire wrapped. The curving blade is superbly designed for penetration (thrust) and as a slashing weapon. A stout steel scabbard completes this legendary sword. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Phenomenal work 1860 Light Saber
Absolutely beautiful swords and work done to them. This is wonderful quality and weight. I purchased several swords and they were packaged perfectly, so nothing was damaged. The engravings were beautiful and the quality of the sword was just outstanding. The presentation was the highlight of the awards. Pleasantly surprised and already purchasing more.

Does not disappoint
I’ve purchased quite a few windlass swords over the past 30 years. Most from Atlanta Cutlery and Museum Replicas. This saber does not disappoint! Historically accurate, well fitted and strong. The saber feels good in the hand and in its sturdy metal scabbard!

The 1860 saber
Exactly as described. The item arrived quickly, well packaged, and with personalization and sharpening.  Upon examining the item, it was well oiled, everything I added was done properly and well. (I only wish the engraving was more catching to the eye, and it’s only because of the steel.). Excellent product.

The fit and finish of components and parts is excellent. Nice balance and weight. Brass hand guard/hilt well formed. It is, as I expected, the quality to be. Well pleased with my purchase.
Looks great on the wall with my Dragoon Saber.
