Cold Steel Classic Gentleman's Saber

Cold Steel Classic Gentleman's Saber
The cavalry saber, with its long, curved, light blade, reached an incomparable level of popularity during the Napoleonic wars. An efficient weapon of war with somewhat heroic overtones, it was used by officers on foot as well as troopers mounted on horseback. It did however, have one drawback. For civilian use or for formal military or ceremonial occasions, it was a bit cumbersome, even awkward, as even the lightest models were too heavy and long for practicality. Additionally, the multiple bar hilt, which effectively protected one's hand from an opposing blade, would occasionally catch, snag, or hook on objects it touched in passing.

The solution was to scale the military saber down to about the size and weight of a small sword and replace the hilt with a spring loaded folding mechanism equipped with a single knuckle bow.

This modification allowed the newly created civilian saber to avoid snags and be worn much closer to the body on the lighter belts and baldrics favored for civilian and military dress attire. It turned out to be a very effective weapon as well. Worn for self-defense, or as a sign of authority, it shortly became a common military dress accessory, even to this day.

Now Cold Steel would like to offer you our interpretation of the civilian or military dress saber. The particularly striking hilt features a highly detailed British lion motif and comes complete with a matching folding guard that locks to the scabbard. For contrast, the grip is made of rich black leather and bound in highly polished brass wire. Complementing the hilt is an equally rich yet sturdy scabbard. Made of thick black leather and heavily reinforced with a polished brass chape, throat and hanging rings, it's elegant enough for the most formal occasions yet stout enough to endure hard wear and last for generations.

But you've got to draw the blade from the scabbard to fully appreciate the genius of our Civilian Saber, as it's just as much a weapon as a showpiece. Hand forged out of 1050 high carbon steel with a hard spring temper, it sports a narrow, 30" slightly curved blade that widens out toward the tip to maximize the effect of slashing blows. To defend you against much larger weapons, it also features an extra thick spine with a unique pipe like cross section running the full length of the blade and terminating a reinforced point. Light enough to be fenced from the fingers and wrist like a small sword; it can outmaneuver heavier blades, remaining constantly ready to deliver a telling blow or lightning quick thrust.
