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.

The Del Tin Hussar Saber has a blade crafted from Chrome-Vanadium high carbon steel with that was tempered to 50 HRC hardness. The blade has a thick and robust spine at its base and body and overall the blade exhibits excellent distal tapering toward its tip, terminating in a thin, flattened tip section designed to slice through a target with minimum drag; ideal for the sweeping slashes and cuts favored by the light cavalrymen this design was favored by!

The guard and pommel cap are antique-finished steel and the wooden grip is bound in tightly overlaid leather.

Though Hussar light cavalrymen reached their apex of popularity in the Napoleonic era, their forebears were late Medieval horsemen who favored this saber. Originally bands of Serbian cavalrymen, they were organized into military warbands by Hungarian king Matthias Corvinus and used to great success to counter the Sipahi cavalry of the expansionist Ottomans.

The success of these swift horseman and their quick, flashing sabers led to Hussars being the standard light cavalry of Hungary. Their track record of success in countering Ottoman cavalry led to them being commonly hired mercenaries in the service of the Habsburg Emperors in the conflicts against the Ottoman Empire. The fame of the Hussars grew with the centuries, and by the Napoleonic Era it was common for many European countries to style light cavalry regiments in the dress, armament and fearless bravado that defined the Hussars.
