Cold Steel Left Handed 1904 Austiran Saber 88PSBL
The orginal 1904 Austiran Saber offered a slightly curved blade with a pipe back and strong point that was ground thin enough at the edge to cut well while remaining stiff and strong enough to thrust with ease. Also, it had a low profile and an asymmetrically shaped, body-hugging guard, whose shell was pierced by 27 holes which reduced weight and improved balance. This uniquely shaped half basket guard gave excellent protection to the thumb, fingers, wrist and forearm without the awkward "bulk" associated with other saber guards of the day.
Cold Steel's 1904 Austrian Saber incorporates the same high carbon steel, pipe black blade, half basket guard and fish skin grip as the original. It comes combat sharp, complete with an exact copy of the original's steel scabbard. It's equipped for battle and eager to help you carve out your own empire.
