RICHMOND! Confederate Made Cavalry Saber Attributed to Boyle & Gamble
Click on an image to enlarge

This is a great looking 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. 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 Richmond, Virginia firm of Boyle & Gamble. This is one of the Boyle patterns that are made with the fuller groove running down the middle but most Boyle swords are made without a fuller. This one has a beautiful full-length blade that measures 35-1/2 inches. It has the hand hammer marks that are a classic trait of a Southern made edged weapon. The guard and pommel cap have a thick, beautiful untouched mellow patina all over. You can see the pebble like grain pattern to the hand guard that was cast in a sand mold at the Southern maker's shop. The handle still retains the original wooden core with none of the leather remaining but it has the original brass wire wrap. You can tell when you look at the pommel cap that this beauty has never been apart or worked on. If you have wanted a true Southern made cavalry saber that doesn't cost ten thousand dollars then this one is for you.
