The brass, 3-branch guard is nicely hand chased and engraved, as is the brass pommel. Blade is beautifully etched with “U.S.,” and “E Pluribus Unum,” along with foliage and military trophies. Steel scabbard has brass throat, rings and drag. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

I own this saber and it is a fantastic weapon. I have examined many originals and I can say this recreation is true to those in almost every respect. The only real difference is the grips are leather rather than ray/shark skin, although some originals have leather grips. Balance is spot on as is weight. This is a fully functional weapon and is great for reenactors or actual use. The blade is both a terrific lasjing blade but also excellent in the thrust. This is a beautiful and versatile weapon. Sharpening service from Atlanta Cutlery/MRL is top notch, the only issue being that they do not sharpen the false edge as on the originals which increase thrusting ability and allows for hook cuts with the reverse. If you like sabers this one is a steal at this price.
