This replica of the 1840 US Cavalry Saber has a blade of tempered 1055 high carbon steel; the base of the blade is stamped with manufacturer’s marks recreated from the original. One side reads: U.S. ADK 1862 and the other side is marked AMESMFGCo, Chicopee, Mass. These markings identify the replica being recreated from an original example crafted by the Ames manufactory in 1862. The guard and pommel are brass and the grip is wrapped in tight black leather finished with twisted brass wire inlay. The sword comes with a scabbard of steel with steel hanging rings.

Based on the 1822 French Hussar Saber, the US M1840 was the replacement for the M1833 Dragoon Saber. It was chosen for US replication after soldiers preferred the French saber over British and Prussian examples during exploratory performance testing.

Deemed the ‘’Old Wristbreaker’’ the M1840 was used extensively in the US Civil War and was considered the heavy cavalry saber - whereas the M1860 was considered to be the light cavalry saber. Though many M1840 sword blades were made in the US, a substantial number of the blades were imported from Germany to keep up with the great demand for the sword.
