Cavalry Sabre Description

The sabre, or saber, is a single edged, backsword with a curved blade.  This blade is first recorded in 1670, directly copied from the French Sable.  Many other countries adopted this design in their own form.   The weapon was multifunctional, designed for cutting as well as thrusting, but its primary function was cutting.  This sword had particular important in the cavalry due to its function.  The sabre’s roots come from the Persian shamshir, a narrow, curved blade.  More than 4/5ths of swords in 19th century Europe were in the sabre design.  The sabre was used as a military weapon for dueling academic fencing in the 19th century.  This led to modern Olympic Sabre fencing allowing cuts and thrusts. 

Blade Materials

This rapier sword is made from 1095 steel which accurately matches the very hard steel content of ancient rapier swords. Currently, 1095 steel is the highest carbon steel commonly used in swords. It has a carbon level of .95% which is one of the highest carbon levels for any type of steel. The most common high carbon swords are 1045 steel which only have .45% carbon content in the steel. 1095 steel is known for its ability to maintain an edge and is an incredibly hard steel. 1095 steel typically has a hardness of 56-58 HRC. While lacking flexibility, the steel excels at remaining sharp even through high impact collisions and can easily be resharpened.
