While heartily approving of the US Armed Forces wearing dress swords and sabers, Cold Steel thinks it is a shame that until now, they have been forced to resort to purchasing unsharpened, poorly tempered wall hangers to carry at their side. Cold Steel believes that modern day warriors should be equipped with the finest equipment, even on ceremonial occasions. That's why they decided to release their own series of swords and sabers that are truly battle-ready and worthy of the combative lineage of the blade, and of the warriors that are carrying them. Expertly forged, heat-treated and spring-tempered for high performance, their highly polished blades are then finely etched then painstakingly hand-honed to a sharp edge.
Each sword is sold complete with a functional and durable scabbard that can be worn on a belt or hung proudly on display when not in use.
Delvery including leather scabbard with brass fittings.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
