The Russian Shashka is the legendary Russian sabre of the Cossack Warrior. The Shashka is a special kind of sabre; a factory edge blade. In it's appearance, the shashka was half-way between a full sabre and a straight sword. It had a slightly curved blade, and could be effective for both slashing and thrusting. The blade was either hollowed or fullered. There was no guard, but a large, curved pommel. The hilt was often highly decorated. It was carried in a wooden scabbard that enclosed part of the hilt. Unlike the traditional sabre it was worn with the cutting edge to the rear. There are no markings on the blade.
