A sabre is a curved, single-edged sword with a large hand guard. The sabre is primarily a cutting weapon, although it performs well enough in the thrust.
The sabre was seen on both sides of conflicts in Redwall. Of the more prominent vermin who showed expertise with the sabre, Princess Kurda was one of the most skilled and infamous. Ruggan Bor, leader of the Juskabor, was a sabre wielder. Also of note is Ublaz Mad Eyes, although he favored his hypnotic stare more than his sabre.
