Historic Arts Sabre wasters

I've just finished my first batch of sabre wasters for a workshop.

These are ash and based on the 1796 light cavalry sabre.

These particular ones are quite simple. Not much distal taper, just enough to stop them being planks, and the guard would not put up with much in the way of strong contact.
However, as an affordable way of having something to start looking at sabre with, these will do nicely.

These will be selling at £20 each plus postage.
For an additional £7 per sabre, I can taper the blade and sculpt the profile so that it handles much more like the 1796.
