Napoleon's cavalry was the bane of the European battlefield. While his horses were second string, his swords were absolutely first rate. They were manufactured in a state of the art factory dedicated to producing the finest edged weapons of the day.
The medium weight saber Cold Steel offers is a cavalry trooper's chosen weapon. It posses excellent cutting and slashing capability and still remains useful for a thrust. In fact, it was so popular that it remained in use long after Napoleon's star had fallen and was wielded by both sides during the Civil War.
In its general overall appearance, it very closely resembles the United States 1860 Light Cavalry Saber. However, this design is slightly different and makes for a far more effective and durable weapon. The thick, moderately curved blade is forged out of 1050 Carbon steel and features a long, wide fuller and a very sharp, practical point.
The grip of the 1830 Napoleon Saber is equally well made. It is wrapped in black leather and strongly protected by a stout, brass three bar hilt. The whole package comes with a heavy duty polished steel scabbard with dual rings so it can be easily attached to your baldric or sword belt.
