Having studied and trained in Western, Japanese and Filipino fighting arts for decades, Lynn has sparred with everything from short lightweight machetes to two-handed broadswords. The Thompson Saber combines all of Lynn's favorite traits from a wide range of sources.

Lynn said: "I wanted to make a battle sword. Not a dueling sword as such, but a true sword fighter's sword for the modern martial artist. I believe that the edge is superior to the point when facing multiple opponents. You have more opportunities to defend, counter, riposte and move without becoming transfixed on an opponent for a vital second - therefore, while it does thrust well, the Thompson Saber is a cutting tool first and foremost, on foot or on horseback. Its ground to my exact specifications; hair-shaving sharp for the first six inches from the point, then gradually less sharp down through the rest of the blade, leaving enough material to block, parry and even bludgeon an opponent's blade. It is deeply blued to aid in rust resistance, but also to make the blade harder to see in the fast paced cut and thrust of combat.

The Thompson Saber has a modified 1904 Saber guard, offering amazing hand protection, and a sizeable ray skin wrapped handle that will accommodate even big modern fencer's gloves. I designed this sword to be able to make deep cuts even with a flick of the wrist, and it makes monstrous cuts when "drawn" through the target. If you study bladed arts and appreciate the combative potential of the sword, I'm sure you'll love this saber!"

I have ordered a sword in your store and would like to order a scabbard now, how?

The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like. If you´re not sure, whether it is a suitable one, contact us with your order number and we will recommend you a suitable style. If you have already received the sword, we will ask you after receiving your order to submit several measurements of the sword blade. If we still have not dispatched the sword, we will take measurements of the blade ourselves and have the scabbard made for you in correct size.
