SKU: CS58 Category:


We designed these sabres to be the most accurate training/tournament sabres available on the market today. We utilized extensive research of extant British examples, accurate guard flat patterns, blade profiles, grip modeling and other specific qualities to bring these tournament grade simulators to life like never before. This sabre features an elegant “3 Bar” style guard made from 100 grade Domex alloy steel that is a near exact copy to the original British 1821 light pattern troopers sabre in terms of overall dimension and weight. The British 3 bar pattern guard was revisited throughout the 19th century as a mainstay design and one of the more popular versions was the British 1853 pattern. Our 23mm curved blade is an exact blunted replica both in dimension (32.75″ long) and weight of the British light artillery “Trooper” blades that were introduced in 1821 along side the heavy model. The 23mm blade is hand ground from hardened 5160 Chrome/Vanadium steel with a “Y” type cross section also known as “hollow ground”. This cross section replicates the flex and handling of the “pipe back” profiles used on the originals. This blade comes with a swelled tip that measures 1/2″ wide and swells to no less than 5mm. The 3D printed grip is an accurate model of the unique “straight” grip on the antique 1853 Wilkinson sabre that we were fortunate enough to get to study here at our facility. We tie it together with our exclusive back cap system that leaves almost no exposed nut.
