Nice example of a Revolutionary War period cavalry saber which was crafted for use rather than show. The saber features a slightly curved unfullered blade with a flat spine. Interesting diamond-shaped crossguard which terminates with a rounded quillion with piercing in the center. Stirrup shaped knucklebow with sharp angle which travels to the end of the tang, which is pierced and secured with a crude washer capstan. The grip is of hollow bone which is revealed by a small hole at the crossguard. Various tool marks are noticeable on the grip which give it a nice rugged appeal. CONDITION: The blade exhibits a gray patina with some light pitting and areas of delamination throughout its length. Very nice edge with minimal wear. Guard is in similar condition with minor pitting and delamination. The crudely shaped handle exhibits handling wear along with the tool marks and there are a couple insignificant chips. A very nice example of an American manufactured cavalry saber.
