Sabre of Cossacks.

Russian Shashka Sword. Leather-bound grip and brass pommel. Leather covered scabbard

 

 

Shashka is a special kind of sabre; a very sharp, single-edged, single-handed, and guardless sword. In appearance, the shashka was midway between a full sabre and a straight sword. It had a slightly curved blade, and could be effective for both slashing and thrusting. The blade was either hollowed or fullered. There was no guard, but a large, curved pommel. The hilt was frequently highly decorated. It was carried in a wooden scabbard that enclosed part of the hilt. It was worn with the cutting edge to the rear, opposite to the sabre.

The shashka originated among the mountain tribes of the Caucasus in the 12th or 13th century. Later it was used by most of the Russian and Ukrainian Cossacks
