Russian Shashka Cossack Sabre

£278.33

Be the first to review this product

The unique Shashka (or Shashqua) cavalry sabre has its roots in the 12th century Caucasus region of Europe. Long associated with the Cossacks, the “Cavalry of the Steppes”, the sword was a 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 cypher appears on the pommel. The sharp high-carbon blade is etched with the royal cypher, features the distinctive blade geometry of the sabre 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 sabres and instead relies on a ribbed hardwood grip and a strongly hooked pommel, assisted by a strong leather lanyard, to provide handling security.
