1881 Russian Shashka

Long associated with the Cossacks, the "Cavalry of the Steppes", the sword was standard military issue for Russian cavalry of the day. This version replicates the Model 1881 Shashka, originally produced during the reign of Tsar Nicholas II, whose cipher appears on the pommel. The sharp high-carbon blade, again etched with the royal cipher, features the distinctive blade geometry of the saber and the strong distal taper provides a balance ideal for its slashing role.  The unique hilt styling dispenses with the basket guard typical of other sabers and instead relies on a ribbed hardwood grip and a strongly hooked pommel, assisted by a strong leather lanyard, to provide handling security.
