China has a history of social discord, which has resulted in wars, revolutions, and other events that have led to the creation of some unique weapons. The Chinese Sabre, for example, is exactly that kind of Weapon: A knight's saber that is equally adaptable by infantrymen in the field.
Cold Steels Chinese Sabre is hand-forged from high-carbon steel. The blade features a single 3/4 fuller length and is moderately curved along its length, ending in a rising tip. The grip features a solid brass disc guard, deeply engraved in the classic style. The handle has a wooden core and is braided with black silk cord and covered with a brass cushion and pommel. The scabbard is made of fine wood and covered in black leather and has decorative accessories in brass.
While undoubtedly a Chinese saber style, this sword could easily work for any steppe warrior reenactors and is particularly suitable for Mongol, Chinese, and Manchu reenactors.
