Cavalry Sabre

American Sabers, British Sabre and Cavalry Swords

The Sabre is a long single edged sword with a thick spine often associated with cavalry swords because of their effectiveness by light cavalry during the Napolionic wars and European cavalry such as the Hussars. Also used by some infantry units these pieces were still a favorite amonst horesman due to their ability to deliver a very power slash from horseback. You may notice we sometimes refer to the "saber" as "sabre" because we use both American and British spellings for these historical backswords.

What is a Sabre?

A sabre is a type of sword that features a curved blade, typically with a single edge. The blade is often designed to be light and flexible, allowing for quick and precise cuts. Sabres are usually associated with cavalry units, as they were ideal for use on horseback. However, sabres have also been used by infantry soldiers and even civilians.

The earliest sabres were likely developed in the Middle East, where curved swords were used by warriors for centuries. These swords eventually spread to other parts of the world, including Europe. By the 17th century, sabres had become an integral part of military tactics in many European armies.

What's the Difference between a Sword and a Saber?

The sabre is a type of sword with a curved blade which is normally only sharpened on one edge. They are made to be wielded single handed while delivering quick, slashing cuts making them favourable to cavalry soldiers. The sabre was ultimately derived from the medieval backsword and started making it's way through 17th century Europe, where the term sabre itself was also conceived.

What is the Difference Saber or Sabre?

There is no real difference between "saber" and "sabre." Both spellings refer to the same type of curved sword. However, "sabre" is the more common spelling in British English, while "saber" is more common in American English.

How is the Cavalry Sabre Used?

The cavalry sabre was specifically designed for use by mounted soldiers. The curved blade and light weight made it ideal for use on horseback, where quick, precise cuts were necessary. The cavalry sabre was also an important symbol of status and authority. Officers and other high-ranking soldiers would often carry elaborately decorated sabres as a sign of their rank and position.
