Napoleon's cavalry was the bane of the European battlefield. His troops were equipped with first rate blades, manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory dedicated to producing the finest edged weapons of the day. Their sabers possessed excellent cutting and slashing capability and still remained useful for a thrust. In fact, they were so popular that they remained in use long after Napoleon's fall and were wielded by both sides in the American Civil War.
Cold Steel®'s 1813 Napoleonic Saber takes inspiration from these exceptional swords, with an elegantly curved 1055 high carbon steel blade and long, wide fuller, culminating in a very sharp, but practical point. The grip is equally well made. It is wrapped in black leather and strongly protected by a stout, brass three bar hilt. The whole package comes with a heavy-duty, hand-polished steel scabbard with dual rings for attachment to a baldric or sword belt.
1055 High Carbon Steel
The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
