Prussian Officers Sabre with Steel Scabbard


Prussian Officers Sabre with Steel Scabbard Nice, good value reproduction of a 19th century Prussian light cavalry officers sabre - also known as lions head sabre owing to the particular shape of its pommel. The slightly curved, unsharpened blade is hand-forged from premium high carbon steel. The blunt edge is about 1 mm thick and the blades full tang is screwed to the pommel. The hilt is composed of a grip with pommel cap and a combined crossguard and knuckle-bow. The pommel is in the shape of a lions head. The simple stirrup-shaped knuckle-bow issuing from the lions mouth flows seamlessly into a straight quillon with down-curving, teardrop-shaped terminal. The grips core is made of wood and wrapped in leather and brass wire. The bow, the lionshead-shaped cap and the guard are crafted from brass. The cavalry sabre is delivered with a matching sheet steel scabbard with two carrying bands and articulated carrying rings. This Prussian sabre with lions head pommel is not a battle ready weapon but a very decorative collectors piece. And besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, i.a. for theatre performances.
