Product Description

1840 US Cavalry Saber

Designated the Model 1840 US Cavalry Saber and known unofficially as The Old Wrist Breaker, this saber saw widespread use during both the Mexican War and Civil War. The Model 1840 US Cavalry Saber was modeled after Franceís light cavalry saber. Nearly 24,000 were produced from 1844 until production ceased in 1858. Most were produced domestically, but some - like 1,000 pieces produced in Germany under contract - were imported.

When the Civil War began, both sides went to war with The Old Wrist Breaker including Union General George McClellan and Confederate General Nathan B Forrest.
