|GEORGE PATTON SWORD (06-305)
The Model 1913 saber was the last functional sword issued to and used by the U.S. Cavalry; this finely crafted sword was commonly attached to a trooper's saddle. Based upon the British M1908 saber, the American version was designed by Lieutenant George S. Patton Jr., Master of the Sword at Fort Riley, Kansas (Well before he became General). The tempered, high carbon steel blade was generally used as a thrusting weapon. Featuring a blackened steel guard and a hard impact resistant plastic handle (as per the originals) , it is easy to grip and is solidly constructed. It has a single fullered blade and wood scabbard with blackened steel mounts. This is a classic that is even better than the original.
