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.
