Sabres are a class of weapons that specialize in heavy cutting damage with an added splash of blunt damage.
Sabres are generally defensive weapons, most featuring a defensive bonus in exchange for an attack penalty. Their attacks are also generally less aggressive than other weapons, leaving fewer openings for others to exploit.
