Nice, good value reproduction of a 19th century Prussian light cavalry officer's sabre - also known as lion's head sabre owing to the particular shape of its pommel.
The slightly curved, unsharpened blade is hand-forged from premium high carbon steel. The blunt edge is about 1 mm thick and the blade's full tang is screwed to the pommel.
The hilt is composed of a grip with pommel cap and a combined crossguard and knuckle-bow. The pommel is in the shape of a lion's head. The simple stirrup-shaped knuckle-bow issuing from the lion's mouth flows seamlessly into a straight quillon with down-curving, teardrop-shaped terminal. The grip's core is made of wood and wrapped in leather and brass wire. The bow, the lionshead-shaped cap and the guard are crafted from brass.
The cavalry sabre is delivered with a matching sheet steel scabbard with two carrying bands and articulated carrying rings.
This Prussian sabre with lion's head pommel is not a battle ready weapon but a very decorative collector's piece. And besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, i.a. for theatre performances.

Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.
