  • Russian Cossack Sabre (Shashka) - 1942 Pattern

    The shashka originated among the mountain tribes of the Caucasus in the 12th or 13th century] Later most of the Russian Cossacks adopted the weapon. It gradually replaced the sabre in all cavalry units except hussars during the 19th century. Russian troops, having encountered it during their conquest of the Caucasus (1817-1864), preferred it to their issue sabres.The Russian Caucasian Corps first adopted it in the 1830s. In 1882 a reorganization of the cavalry saw the regular dragoons armed with the shashka. Cossacks had received this type of sword earlier. Soviet cavalry carried several forms of shashka in the Second World War. Our shashka is forged from high quality EN9 steel and the polished blade is well tempered.

  • Russian Shashka Cossack Sabre

    The unique Shashka (or Shashqua) cavalry sabre has its roots in the 12th century Caucasus region of Europe. Long associated with the Cossacks, the “Cavalry of the Steppes”, the sword was a standard military issue for Russian cavalry of the day. This version replicates the Model 1881 Shashka, originally produced during the reign of Tsar Nicholas II, whose cypher appears on the pommel. The sharp high-carbon blade is etched with the royal cypher, features the distinctive blade geometry of the sabre and the strong distal taper provides a balance ideal for its slashing role.  The unique hilt styling dispenses with the basket guard typical of other sabres and instead relies on a ribbed hardwood grip and a strongly hooked pommel, assisted by a strong leather lanyard, to provide handling security.
