Developed by The Swiss around the 16th Century. Unlike the traditional longer versions of cavalry sabers, The Swiss model was comparatively shorter. The blade was only 30-35 inches long. Made of steel, they featured an ornate and stylized basket hilt hand guard (made thinner that most). The pommel was spiked, so as to use it as a striking weapon as well. Swiss Short Sabers were extremely sharp (single-edged and razor sharp). The sharpness made up for the lack of length.
