Cold Steel Left Handed 1852 Prussian Saber 88PSAL
The Prussian Saber tried to strike a perfect balance. Roll forged from high carbon steel with a spring temper, it offered a slightly curved blade with a pipe back (spine) that ran down its length to reinforce the spear point. It had a remarkably effective, pierced basket guard and a sharkskin wrapped grip. It was a light, handy saber that cut efficiently and was diabolical in the thrust because of the added stiffness of its pipe back cross section.
Cold Steel's version, like many of their swords, is rooted in the experiences acquired by the President, Lynn C. Thompson, who fences regularly with 7075 aluminum and steel replicas. Lynn was impressed with the terrific hand, wrist, and forearm protection offered by the 1852 in addition to its superior fighting characteristics. Crafted from 1055 high carbon steel with a hard spring temper and a combat sharp edge, Cold Steel's battle-ready replica mimics the original nearly to perfection.
