This well-known sabre has a mortuary hilt that protects the hand. Swords like this were used all over the British Isles during the 17th centuries. The hilts were made in Great Britain while the blades where mostly imported from Germany. This is the weapon of cavalrymen during the British Civil War. Later on this type of sword developed through to the well-known basket hilt broadsword & backsword.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
