Cold Steel item description: You are looking at 41 ½ inches of prime Cold Steel U.S. Cavalry 1860 Saber. This is the Cold Steel CS88HCS. A fantastic reproduction interpretation of the original 1860 model popularized and used during the American Civil War.
During the way you could choose between a lightweight Saber or a heavy duty Saber. The heavier one found more use among the cavalrymen due to it's weight. It was able to be sued to deliver crushing blows as well as thrusting piercings and so was carried more often. It had a 36 inch blade and a Brass guard with three bars for protection.
This Cold Steel version is much the same but with a few improvements. They have used 1055 carbon steel that delivers a hard spring temper and will pass the British proof test. It measures 1/3 inches in thickness across the blade and weighs a very hefty 42.9oz – so be prepared to handle this substantial Saber. Please note that Scabbards will oxidize and turn. The handle is leather and has a Brass wire wrap. The scabbard is double ringed steel.
