Description of the Product

American Civil War was fought 1861-1865 between the Union (the northern states) and the Confederacy (the southern states). Slavery in whole America was one of the things being settled in this war. After the Union had won the Confederate states with technical superiority and manpower slavery was ended by law, all slaves freed and black promised citizenship rights. The cavalry and officers of this time used curved, single-edged sabers. Sabers are designed to cut more efficiently when swung from horseback and the risk of getting sword stuck is much smaller than with a straight blade.
This all metal letter opener is approx. 25cm long.
