Its' hilt was very short and lack a hand guard, making the hilt very light in terms of weight compare to other single handed swords. So it's a forward balance, but very light swords. (1 lb 11 oz only), powerful in cuts, yet quick to move around. I won't enjoy sparring/fighting with this style of sword due to the danger of lacking a hand guard, though. :P Cutting alone, is fine.

the shasqua of course though was a cossacks cavalry weapon, so not as much of an issue,

I agree so! Such handguard-less design was also exist in Chinese arms history where the sword was used as cavalry weapons. They were not for "fencing".
