The army of Napoleon was celebrated for its organization, despite the countless variations in uniforms and equipment. While the rank and file soldiers were issued the standard accoutrements of the day, the officer's ranks were composed of a somewhat vainglorious lot who sought ways to distinguish themselves in both dress and styling of their weaponry. Huge numbers of differently styled edged weapons were issued and some were even custom-made to order. Among the best examples of these special sabers was one forged for Lancer Officers. It was beautifully balanced and offered a moderately curved blade, a sharp useful point, and an excellent three bar hilt. As a cavalry weapon, it was more than suitable for use in a charge and performed equally well when fighting at close range in the mêlée. It was, however, the striking appearance of this saber that really inspired Cold Steel. From the highly polished steel and elegant etchings on the blade, to the intricately decorated solid brass furniture and hilt, it is truly a vision to behold.
Cold Steel took their cue from an antique saber in a friend's collection. This is a saber that deserves to be reintroduced. This faithful reproduction comes with a highly polished, battle-ready blade forged from 1055 high carbon steel, a wire-wrapped leather handle, a polished stainless steel scabbard and a dazzling, highly decorated three bar hilt.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
