Hi,

I have the following items for sale. All were display pieces only and never used. In the same new condition as I received them. I am the original owner of them.

COLD STEEL SMALL SWORD

Specifications:
Condition: Excellent, not used
Blade Length: 31 ¼"
Overall Length: 38 ¼"
Steel: 1055 Carbon
Weight: 22.6 oz
Handle: 7"
Scabbard: Leather Scabbard




The advantage of the sword point over the edge became increasingly evident by the end of the 16th century. The Rapier, with its long, elegantly thin profile which emphasized its point, became the popular choice in civilian self-defense. It was however a somewhat unwieldy weapon especially when it was used in narrow, crowded streets and alleyways. Eventually a more sophisticated, shorter and lighter version emerged that by the end of the 17th century had evolved into an entirely new weapon, the Small Sword.

Civilians carried it for as long as swords remained an integral part of fashionable dress. Its primary advantage was its stiff, lightweight blade which was forged in a triangular cross section. It was a highly lethal weapon, ideal for thrusting, and hung conveniently from a sash, baldric, or belt. The hilt (compared to the Rapier's) was simple and smartly functional, consisting of no more than an elliptical plate, or two shells and a light knuckle guard.

The Cold Steel Small Sword duplicates the original model in weight, balance, triangular cross section, and deadly sharp point, but uses modern materials like 1055 Carbon steel, heat treated to a tough spring temper. The hilt features two shells with functional finger loops and a light, but strong, knuckle guard. Perfectly balanced and weighing only 22 ounces, the Small Sword comes complete with an attractive leather scabbard that features an intricately decorated throat and chape.

Retails for $424.99
Price: $250

1917 CUTLASS

Specifications:
Condition: Excellent, not used
Blade Length: 25"
Overall Length: 29 5/8"
Steel: 1055 Carbon
Weight: 33.7 oz
Handle: 4 5/8" Hardwood
Scabbard: Leather Scabbard w/ Brass and Copper Fittings




In 1917, the U.S. Navy decided to replace its Model 1860 cutlass which had been in continuous service for 57 years, with a new model. Cold Steel's® modern recreation of this classic fighting sword is as authentic as possible, it is virtually an exact copy of an original in the personal collection of Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson. Our 1917 Cutlass features the signature 25" curved blade and a half basket guard that’s stamped out of heavy 18-guage high carbon steel, and both the blade and guard are blued to resist rusting. The handle is made from carefully shaped hardwood, painted brown and secured to the tang by three heavy brass cutler's rivets.

The scabbard is an accurate reproduction of the original and is made of high quality leather and features brass and copper fixtures. It can be worn comfortably at the side on a pistol belt without chafing its owner.

Retails for $279.99
Price: $150

1796 LIGHT CAVALRY SABER

Specifications:
Condition: Excellent, not used
Blade Length: 33"
Overall Length: 37 ¾"
Steel: 1055 Carbon
Weight: 34.2 oz
Handle: 4 ¾"
Scabbard: All Steel Scabbard





This saber was widely used by the British and their Prussian allies under General Blucher in the Battle of Waterloo. The blade was derived from the ferocious Indian Talwar and was reviled by the French who protested its use due to the horribly destructive wounds it inflicted. In fact, this saber was so successful as a cutting weapon, that the German Cavalry continued to use it right up to the beginning of the 20th century!

If you want a combat quality saber that will pass the British Proof Test and is fully capable of shearing off arms and even legs with a single blow, this is a must have! It comes with a sharpened forward edge and your choice of wood and leather scabbard with steel mounts and fittings, or an all metal scabbard.

The 1796 Light Cavalry Saber comes with your choice of an all steel scabbard or a wood/leather scabbard. Both versions feature steel mounts and fittings.

Retails for $387.49
Price: $225

Jeff
