This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

At the outbreak of the American Civil War, there were two types of sabers issued to the Federal Cavalry: ''light'' and ''heavy''. The light version was popular, but the heavy model, dubbed the ''Old Wrist Breaker'' was the one worth owning, as it was a superior weapon. Its 36'' blade offered big reach advantages over most sabers, and its substantial weight gave it the leverage to easily crush bones and sever limbs or even a head with a single blow. The brass guard had three bars to protect the hand and the grip was wire bound leather and capped with a sturdy pommel. In its double ringed, steel scabbard, it could be easily attached to a saddle or to a belt.

The Cold Steel 1860 US Heavy Cavalry Saber features a sharpened 1055 carbon steel blade with a hard spring temper. The guard is brass with a leather covered, wire wrapped grip. Includes a steel scabbard with hanging rings.
