Product Details: Russian Cossack Sabre 1942

Russian Cossack Sabre 1942; The Shashka originated among the mountain tribes of the Caucasus in the 12th or 13th century. Later most of the Russian Cossacks adopted the weapon. It gradually replaced the sabre in all cavalry units except hussars during the 19th century. Russian troops, having encountered it during their conquest of the Caucasus (1817-1864), preferred it to their issue sabres. The Russian Caucasian Corps first adopted it in the 1830s. In 1882 a reorganization of the cavalry saw the regular dragoons armed with the Shashka. Cossacks had received this type of sword earlier. Soviet cavalry carried several forms of Shashka in the Second World War. Our Shashka forged from high quality EN9 steel and the polished blade well tempered.
