This is a cool looking and still affordable untouched Confederate cavalry saber! This is the classic unmarked version that has lovingly been nicknamed by collectors as the "Dog River" Confederate cavalry saber that is patterned after the U.S. model 1840 cavalry known as the "wristbreaker". They get this nickname because some of the unmarked cavalry sabers were made by the factory on the Dog River in Georgia or Alabama. The fact is that most of the swords that are unmarked with this nickname were made throughout the south at arsenals and retailers both large and small. This particular design has long been attributed to the Columbus, Georgia firm of Lewis and Elijah Haiman. This firm was one of the largest producers of edged weapons for the Confederate cavalry during the Civil War. Their swords have a distinctive curve to the grip and other traits that allow us to know it is one of their products. This one has a blade that is 35-1/2 inches in length. It has the hand hammer marks that are a classic trait of a Southern made edged weapon. It also has the correct single fuller groove down each side of the blade. At the base of the blade, the washer was lost eons ago so the handguard is wobbly but doesn't come off. It could be tightened up but we will leave that for you. The guard and pommel cap have a thick, beautiful untouched patina all over with the dark ancient color patina. The handle still retains the original wooden core as well as traces of the leather wrapping. This is another trait of the Haiman produced swords. It has the thick single-strand wire wrapped around the leather. You can tell when you look at the pommel cap that this beauty has never been apart or worked on. The sword is missing the original scabbard but has an imported Civil War cavalry saber added for a replacement. It looks great with the sword as you can see. If you have wanted a true Southern made cavalry saber that doesn't cost ten thousand dollars then this one is for you.
