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.

Kosciuszkowka is a military weapon used by the infantry and cavalry at the end of the 18th century. It became extremely popular during the Kosciuszko Uprising in 1794. Its present name is related to Supreme Commander Tadeusz Kosciuszko but at the time it was called a cutlass of the Polish National Cavalry. The characteristic closed hilts with hand guards there were double bent at the right angle as well as wooden, adorned grips distinguished these sabres from others. Their blades had non-uniform parameters and curvatures. They were frequently adorned with ornamental inscriptions, e.g. VIVAT KAWALERIA NARODOWA, (Long Live National Cavalry). The Kosciuszkowka was used by the soldiers during the battle of Raclawice and by commanding officers of the Dabrowski Legions in Italy.
