"Sabre" in context

The sabre is a type of sword specifically designed for use in cavalry combat during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Although sabres appeared in various forms throughout history, it was during the early modern era that the sabre became truly distinctive, its curved blade designed for slashing rather than thrusting.
