  • A.Russian Shashka- The shashka is a special kind of sabre, a very sharp, single-edged, single-handed, and guardless sword. In appearance, the shashka is midway between a full sabre and a straight sword. It has a slightly curved blade, and could be effective for both slashing and thrusting. The Shashka is similar to the typical cavalry saber. Originally a saber from the Caucasus region, swords like this Black Russian Shashka were adopted by many Russian forces, and by the Cossacks, who are most famous for them. Traditionally, the shashka were used as the primary sword of a people who preferred to do battle on horseback, striking with hit-and-run tactics. This particular model recreates the classic shashka, possessing the hand crafted in carbon steel curved blade, with a wide, rounded fuller, a gentle blade-curve, and a diamond shaped cross-section near the fine point at the tip. The hilt sits flush with the scabbard when sheathed, which is yet another common feature of the shashka. The hilt has no guard, a fine, forward-set leather wrapped grip, and touches of brass accents in its design, plus a tied black tassel decoration at the tip. The included scabbard is made from wood, wrapped in matched black leather, and accented with brass at the throat and chape.

Historical Period

  • A.Russian Shashka--the shashka was developed in the 12th century by Circassians in the Northern Caucasus. These lands were integrated into the Russian Empire in the 18th century. By that time shashka was adopted as their main cold weapon by Russian Cossacks.

  • B.Briquet Short Sword(Anix)-- --Napoleonic era 18th-19th century

  • C.Anix Sword - - French historian Alexandre Exquemelin reports the buccaneer Francois l'Ollonais using a cutlass as early as 1667. In 1936 the British Royal Navy announced that from then on cutlasses would be carried only for ceremonial duties and not used in landing parties.[7] However the last recorded use of cutlasses by the Royal Navy was on 16th February 1940 during the boarding action known as the Altmark Incident. Cutlasses continue to be worn in the Royal Navy by a Chief Petty Officer escorting the White Ensign and by Senior or Leading Ratings in an escort at a court martial. The cutlass remained an official weapon in United States Navy stores until 1949. In a message released March 31, 2010, the US Navy approved optional wear of a ceremonial cutlass as part of the Chief Petty Officer dress uniform, pending final design approval. That approval came in January 2011, and the cutlass was made available for ceremonial wear by Chief Petty Officers in August of that year.
