Stating in the late 16th Century, a different type of Saber began to emerge in Central Europe, rapidly spreading to the North and later to the West. A heavier weapon meant for sustained fighting as opposed to the ride-by slash. These were longer, broader-bladed, probably influenced by Hungarian sabers and possibly the Tulwar and / or the Killij, with a blade flaring out toward the tip for greater cutting power. Heavy sabers typically had greater hand protection. This design remained popular though the 19th Century. A classic example is the British 1796 pattern light cavalry saber (not to be confused with the 1796 pattern heavy cavalry saber, which was actually a straight bladed Backsword).
