The Cold Steel CS88S, also known as the 1796 Light Cavalry Saber, stands as a testament to historical warfare, drawing inspiration from its widespread use by British and Prussian forces, notably under General Blucher in the Battle of Waterloo. Derived from the formidable Indian Talwar, this saber struck fear into the hearts of French adversaries, who dreaded the devastating wounds it inflicted. Its efficacy was such that the German Cavalry continued its use well into the 20th century, attesting to its enduring combat prowess.

Crafted to combat quality standards and capable of passing the rigorous British Proof Test, the CS88S is designed for formidable cutting power, capable of shearing off limbs with a single blow. Fully sharpened and accompanied by a leather sheath with steel mounts, this saber embodies a blend of historical authenticity and contemporary functionality.
