1881P WW1 Russian Dragoon Cavalry Trooper's
Shaska / Sabre, sold
A very scarce World War 1 Russian dragoon cavalry trooper's shaska
(sabre) in very good order, complete with original scabbard and
the remains of the leather knot and belts.
In very good condition overall, this is an extremely rare sword,
most having been destroyed or left to corrode one way or another
over the years, especially those with the Russian Imperial double
headed eagle on it, as this one has. Dated 1915 and unit marked.
Please note: We 100% guarantee this sword is authentic, not one
of the hundreds of aged reproductions normally sold over the Internet.
Again, guaranteed 100% authentic.
The 32 inch blade is in very good condition, a few patina patches
here and there, but not too much or many. The blade is firm in the
hilt, the hilt still with unit / regiment markings clear, the Zlatoust
factory mark a little feint but still visible. The slotted wooden
grips are in very good shape. The retaining nut apparently has never
been removed. The original scabbard is in good order. The leather
straps and remains of the knot are aged, but nice to have. The shaska
sheathes and draws well. A well above average example. Further /
full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number
