N.P. Ames Cabotville 1847 Saber Sword. Was made by N.P.Ames Company, Massachusetts and was called the ''Wrist Breaker". One side of blade has inscribed " N.P. Ames, Cabotville,1847" the other side is inscribed "US,NWP" the Blade was 31" long, overall 41" Long,. This one has been highly modified, it probably broke at some point and someone modified it. The guard has been ground off and made into a double guard. The blade has been turned into a spear point. Leather handle and twisted wire wrap are all original, but the leather is cracking and most of the wire wrap is gone. Has rust, dings patina, you name it. Fair condition, however it is still a cool and interesting piece that has been around since 1947.
