MAA LaFontaine Sword of War

Designed by noted swordsman Luke LaFontaine and bearing his name, the LaFontaine Sword of War combines elements of a 16th Century Sword of War with a Complex Hilt Longsword. It was not carried on a belt or baldric, but rather held in hand, rested on the shoulder or simply carried by a manservant or page. Designed primarily for battlefield combat, it was almost as big as a Zweihander or a Great Sword, with a long double-edged blade, elaborate ring guards, counter guards and peaked quillons, a closed ricasso for looping a finger through the cross for added control, and a heavy counterbalancing pommel that made a fearsome weapon in its own right!

A versatile and complex weapon with many advantages that should be apparent to any Historical European Martial Artist, it was also a symbol of prestige that said much about the status and prowess of its wielder.

Made in Cold Steel®'s signature Man at Arms style, the LaFontaine Sword of War features a 1050 high carbon steel blade that has been deeply blued to an inky black sheen. It is fully sharpened and supplied complete with a thick leather and steel scabbard.

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.
