In August 1840 the Ordinance Dept. purchased 500 of this pattern saber from S&K in Solingen, Prussia. Later it was made by Ames Mfg. Co. The blade is polished spring steel . The hilt solid brass. The grip is wood covered with leather and wire bound. Our replica comes with a polished steel scabbard. Overall length is 37 1/4" and the blade length is 31 6/8".ouT of STOCK
