Based on Cossack design, this Russian Dragoon Officer Shashka Sabre brings together the blade of this legendary sword with the guard of a more contemporary European saber, creating a melding of both worlds that quite the sight to behold - and handle! The shashka was, originally, a saber designed for use on horseback, and was exceedingly effective and lethal, thanks to its hardy make. This reproduction echoes the classic shashka blade, featuring a curved edge, a fine point, and a deep fuller, all found on a hand crafted steel blade. The hilt is a point of difference, though, as on the original shashka, there was no guard. On this model, a brass D-guard protects the hand, while still featuring a red and black grip that is turned slightly down in traditional fashion. Included with the saber is a matched scabbard, crafted from wood, wrapped in leather, and set with brass accents at the throat and chape, while also featuring a brass wearing ring for ease of carrying, too. For the military collector and reenactor, this Russian Dragoon Officer Shashka Sabre is a great blade to own and display, as well as a handsome and historic piece to have hanging at your side, for your own military looks, too.
