MAA Hand-and-a-half Sword, with scabbard

We would be hard-pressed to think of a more versatile or effective sword than Cold Steel®'s Bastard or Hand-and-a-half Sword we offer here. For a sword of this size, it is amazingly light (approx. 1.4 kg) and fast. Its 85cm long blade is quite wide so it can cut deep, yet pointed enough to be effective in thrusting. Its long handle is suitable for both a one- or two-handed grip. In order to balance the long blade, the butt is capped with a beautiful scent-stopper pommel which can serve as an effective weapon in its own right. More information...

MAA Hand-and-a-half Sword, with scabbard

Cold Steel® Man at Arms (MAA) Hand-and-a-half Sword, Bastard Sword with scabbard

This is the Man at Arms (MAA) version of Cold Steel®'s original Hand-and-a-half Sword (Product No. CST-88HNH).

  • Blade material: 1055 high carbon steel with gun metal finish
  • Overall length: approx. 115.6cm
  • Handle length: approx. 30.5cm
  • Blade length: approx. 85.1cm
  • Blade thickness: approx. 6.35mm
  • Weight: approx. 1429 g
  • Including leather scabbard with blued steel fittings
  • Cold Steel® Product No.: 88HNHM

Each one-and-a-half-handed sword reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials and comes fully sharpened and ready for battle. To safely house the blade, Cold Steel® has also included a very attractive leather scabbard ornamented with a throat and a chape made of blued steel.

The medieval man-at-arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. Although he was not a Knight, he fought and trained alongside them as a brother in arms. To honor these rugged, salt-of-the-earth warriors, Cold Steel® has created a range of true journeyman's weapons called the Man at Arms Collection.

These battle-ready weapons may lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of Cold Steel®'s high-end weapons, but they are quite similar in quality and performance. The fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that complements the black handles. And when well-oiled, they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.

The Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of Cold Steel®'s finest blades, but at a markedly reduced price. If you always wanted a Cold Steel® piece but couldn't afford one, this collection is made for you. 

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.

In addition to this sword, a matching companion dagger can also be purchased (Product No. CST-88HNHDM): Scaled down in size but almost identical in appearance, its blade is designed for cutting and thrusting but is also sturdy enough to perform efficiently as a defensive weapon.
