Testing of Windlass Steelcrafts Civil War Cavalry Sabers

QUESTION: Have you ever tested any of Windlass Steelcrafts Light Cavalry Sabers, Such as the M1630 Light Cavalry Saber and the Officers model? Just wondering how they hold up. I own the M1850 Staff and Field Officers Sword, but do not use it, although real, these were rarely used and were mainly to show rank. Thank you very much for your time.

ANSWER: Hi Michael,

Getting around to it (so many swords in the que! lol). But there is a review of the Windlass 1860 Cavalry Saber by fellow Saberite G. Scott Hoagland that he found was definitely a good value for money buy.

More coming soon though! ;-)
