Description
 
A Polish sabre (szabla) is an Eastern European long one-edged melee weapon. It started to be used in Poland in the 15th century thanks to relations with Lithuania, Hungary and war contacts with Turkey, where sabres were very popular. A sabre consists of a blade and a hilt made of a grip and cross-guard quillions. A hilt may be open or closed with a hand guard. A one-edged bladed ended with a two-edged yelmen is responsible for the sabre's attack force. The cut is inflicted with a sharp edge of the blade. Due to Polish tradition and history, a sabre constitutes a particular symbol, which makes it a highly esteemed weapon. This miniature makes a perfect letter opener.

The 1921 sabre was a standard sabre for all types of armed forces. Its parameters were specified by the Minisrty of Military Affairs dated 12 April 1921. The 80cm long blade was slightly curved and the closed hilt was made of brass or blued steel. The grip was made of transversely crimped wood or in commanding officer's sabres, of black leather enlaced with a brass wire. The hand guard was vertically joined to the cross-guard and rounded at the pommel. The sabre rested in a steel or sometimes nickel-plated sheath. Without the sheath, it weighed 1 kg. The 1921 sabre was the most popular model during the interwar period.
