Chinese Sword Breaker

When developing this rare and unusual weapon, Cold Steel® drew inspiration from an original antique sword breaker they were privileged to handle and study in China. Cold Steel®'s handle is made of heavy, dense wood with a fluted cross section that affords a good grip. It features beautifully cast nickel-silver fittings throughout, from the decoratively detailed circular guard to the very stout 5-lobed pommel that effectively counterbalances the weight of the blade and makes it easier to wield. Beautifully forged out of 1055 high carbon steel, the blade has the traditional rectangular cross section and hollow ground 'flats'.

Chinese Sword Breaker

The ancient Chinese Sword Breaker had a rectangular (occasionally hollow ground) cross section with sharp corners, making it possible for it to focus a blow with maximum impact. Such a blow could, at the very least, beat an opponent's blade or so far 'out of line' that recovery in time to mount a defense was virtually impossible. At the most, it could live up to its name and could break, bend or disable conventional swords and many other weapons with a single blow! In either scenario, one was left powerless to avoid the Sword Breaker's imposingly ferocious point. Luckily, there were few who encountered this powerhouse in battle, as its girth and heft meant it required a warrior of substantial strength and agility to wield it properly. But, in the hands of a physically able and skilled warrior, it was the scourge of hand-to-hand combat.

Provided complete with a beautiful wooden scabbard that features nickel-silver furniture to match the grip, Cold Steel®'s Sword Breaker is popular with both the Martial Arts community and historical Reenactment enthusiasts. A beautiful collectors item and a true battle-ready tool, the Sword Breaker will be the talking point of any collection.
