The Easton Sabre is heavily influenced by the British Victorian regulation practice sabre, the 1864 pattern.
This was the standard practice sabre for British military soldiers including cavalry troopers and officers of all branches between 1864 and 1895.
These were also known as 'quill' edges and are referenced in period manuals. The advantages of this blade design are that force is spread over a larger contact surface,
edge damage is minimised and good flex is retained in the thrust. Our only notable change has been to add a rolled tip for added safety.
In making the new practice sabre we have also introduced a more elaborate hilt, with a stronger guard, having rolled edges, and a grip which more closely matches the feeling of antique service swords.
The back of the grip is slightly flattened to provide a better seat for the thumb. This is a military practice sabre, which in size, mass, balance and handling characteristics very closely matches antique service swords.
It is the culmination of a long process of development and testing by Matt Easton and Schola Gladiatoria.
