I am looking for a reproduction of a Polish 1934 Cavalry Sabre. Do any manufacturers make functional reproductions? Has anybody out there handled an original?

i found this one. could not verify the producer however. around 450 EUR, blade SF 55 spring steel

http://www.lampywcentrum.pl/polska-szabla-boj...-kuta.html

*off topic an:

having this site translated from polish to english by algorithm, i was surprised to have a "vagina made ​​of stainless polished SHINE".
so obviously polish alike as german has the same word for sheath/scabbard and the female genital.
is this just a central european thing or does anyone know of parallels in other languages ?

Not unusual at all. Vagina is a word first used by Romans for sword scabbards and only later for female organ, not accidently.

Anybody ever hear of szablapolska.com? They seem to have a 1934 repro for about $875.00 USD. I was wondering if they produce functional sharps or if they produce dull replicas like many other manufacturers do. The site is in Polish, and the computer translation is rough. They say that the blade is hardened spring steel, but it does not mention hardness or carbon content.

Online Etymology Dictionary supports this.

I suspect that many non-English websites, in order to avoid translation fees, take advantage of online translators such as Google Translate and don't bother proofing the results too much. So you get somewhat... unusual translations like that on occasion; it's not the first time I've seen the term. I took Latin in school (years ago) so I recall the Roman meaning of the term, it didn't throw me too much, but it's kinda amusing Happy

Anyway, I see Szabla Polska thrown around a lot when people talk about sabers. They seem to be recommended for training swords, I don't know about sharp. It may just be that they are one of the main sources, not that they're the best or anything. It may be worth your time to check the HEMA Alliance forums, as saber is a up and coming field of study in HEMA.

Hello Kevin

http://www.lampywcentrum.pl is just a store, not the manufacturer.
I never found who did sabers 34.
Kevin see the price, it is very small. A lot of work is a small price, not good.
Weight saber is large, the balance might be wrong.
Regards

no, sorry, i did not mean to bring this up for laughter but out of ethymologic interest.
i simply found it interesting, that two languages like german and polish, who had little or no influence by latin, and also little or no influence on each other, somehow had the same thought in mind.
and besides that, i am simply too old for a boyish grin, when hearing this word. Wink

It's gonna be blunt unless you specifically ask for a sharp though.

Here is the link for the site I referenced above. Their other products look impressive, including a 55 inch hussar sabre.

Has anybody seen or handled their work?
