This 19th century sabre is developed by Hanwei as a battle-ready sabre for 19th century fencing. Sabres like this were used since the 19th century and they were used until World War I by the European cavalry divisions. The Milanese fighting master Guiseppe Radaelli was presumably the man who developed the Radaelli sabre. Later on Salvatore Pecoraro perfectioned the weapon after which it was used in Rome at the martial art school.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
