Dubbed the “Old Wrist Breaker,” this saber was issued to the Federal Cavalry at the outbreak of the American Civil War. Its 36" blade offered big-reach advantages over most sabers, and its substantial weight gave it the leverage to impact damage on the battlefield. Signature three-barred brass guard, a wire-bound leather grip and capped with a sturdy pommel. Blade has been improved with 1055 carbon steel. Includes a leather scabbard. Imported. Blade length: 36". Overall length: 41-1/2". Weight: 42.9 oz.
