Description

**NO LONGER AVAILABLE** The Saber of Charlemagne the Great is a vital part of European history . being an important artifact in the Insignia of the Holy Roman Empire . of which Charlemagne was the first Emperor. The saber is housed today . together with the rest of the imperial insignia . in the Kunsthistoriches Museum in Vienna.The sword is of Eastern European origin . dating from the first half of the 10th century. How it became a part of the insignia is not known but its lavish decoration indicates that it was made for an important member of the nobility. It is clearly a cavalry saber . indicative of its origins in the Eurasian Steppes. CAS Hanwei's version of the saber is faithful in detail to the weapon as it was conceived . even to the point of omitting the decorative 15th century repairs that render the original unusable. The high carbon blade features a broad gold-finished fuller . with intricate engraving to match that of the original. The authentic hilt construction features a rayskin-wrapped grip with a gilded brass guard and fittings . including a globate pommel that balances the sword beautifully. The wood core scabbard is covered in leather and gilded brass fittings to match the hilt.
