Russia was introduced to the shasqua in the 1830's and officially declared it later as the official sword for the Russian military and Police forces. This version has a brass pommel marked with a star, sickle and hammer representing the 1881's piece adopted by the Soviet Union.
This sword is hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts with a true high carbon steel blade. Although this swords edge is un-sharpened it is capable of holding a very sharp edge like the original shashka with our optional sharpening service. The hilt features detailed brass casting work with a hand carved hardwood grip. The Shasqua also includes a rigid leather sheath complemented with matching brass capped tip and collar around the sheathes throat.
