For sale, this rare example of a Shashka, probably dating from the 19th century. The sabre is in great shape with a few areas of light pitting and is still relatively sharp. The wooden grip is in excellent shape, very solid with no rattle.
The scabbard is in rough shape, missing one of the suspension rings and its chape as well as some patches of leather. It could be restored if one would wish to do so.
Shashkas are very popular with collectors as they are a very unique type of sabre. This one was truly meant for fighting with a very simple but solid grip and blade.
