This ad is for a 18th century half basket brass hilted hanger sword. It is marked "India." The sword is unsharpened and in like new condition. These sale for $150 new, the price for this sword is $100 plus shipping in the cont. US.

This Hanger sword has a blade of 1055 high carbon steel peened to a hilt of brass. Its companion scabbard is crafted from sturdy leather with chape and throat pieces of brass. This reproduction of a British infantrymanís hanger is based on an extant example dating to 1760. These British brass-hilted swords were heavily influenced by French and German hangers from the continent as evidenced by its half-basket hilt with a heart shaped guard. The hanger sword is designed for close-in fighting - the blade is an ideal length for a close-quarters scrum and the wide, cutlass-like blade delivers forceful chops, hacks and sweeping slashes. The clipped point lends itself well to a slightly upturned thrust. This form of the Hanger is very similar to the Cutlass, and a blade of this type offered here would do quite well when used as a Cutlass.

Overall Length: 30 7/8''
Blade: 25 1/2''
Blade: 1055 High Carbon Steel
Weight: 2 lb 0.5 oz
Edge: Unsharpened
P.O.B.: 5 1/2''

Grip Length: 3 3/4''
