Cold Steel 88RPS Polish Saber 32" Carbon Steel Blade, Red Leather Scabbard
CS88RPS: 88RPS Polish Saber
Another addition to Cold Steel's line-up of high-performance swords is inspired by examples of early 17th century Polish sabers.
Used both on horseback and on foot, these battlefield sabers had a fearsome reputation, not least for the skill-at-arms of the Polish noblemen who wielded them, but also for their phenomenal cutting potential.
Cold Steel's interpretation of this historically significant blade was designed by custom bladesmith Dave Baker, and is made from expertly heat treated carbon steel. With a fully sharpened, distal tapered and strongly curved blade, the Polish Saber is capable of delivering exceptional cuts, while still remaining stiff enough for the thrust.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An extremely tough steel with high carbon content and a hardness between 60-64RC, 1055 is best suited for high-impact and high-stress applications.
