CS88HNHM: 88HNHM Man at Arms Hand-And-A-Half Sword
Cold Steel
Cold Steel is quickly becoming the go-to company for functional, affordable, reproduction swords and weapons. Their stuff is great for reenactors, or folks who just like chopping stuff up in the woods with old style tools!
The Man at Arms was a warrior, pure and simple. A stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was a capable and competent warrior who 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, reliable, salt-of-the-earth warriors Cold Steel has created a range of true journeyman’s weapons that they have called the Man at Arms Collection. These practical and battle ready swords lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of their other swords, but they pack a resounding punch where it counts! Approximating the quality and performance of these high end swords, the Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of the finest high performance blades but at a markedly reduced price. Their fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that compliments their black leather handles, and when well-oiled they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.

If you always wanted a Cold Steel sword, but couldn't afford one, the Man at Arms collection is for you. This is a well executed, high value version of the CS88HNH Hand-and-a-Half Sword with a blued steel blade.

Pros: Finish, Usable, Materials, Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Handle Material
Wiggly end cap
I own a lot of cold steel products and love them. This is my first Man at Arms product and like the design and colour of the item but was quite surprised to find that the end cap is wiggly. I could not fix it by tightening the screw with a screwdriver either. I have read somewhere else that peopele have had the problem of the end cap even detaching when chopping with the sword and it really does not feel secure with an end cap wiggling when swinging a big and sharp sword. The sword comes with a cold steel logo reading strongest and sharpest swords - manufactured in India. I would suggest that Cold Steel try to look over ther quality control!

Well now
I must say I'm very happy with this sword. This thing is just gorgeous in its simplicity. Rather than some ornate sword of a nobleman or lord this looks like the gift given to a soldier who's going to be headed off to a long weary war. The blade is hefty and sturdy, but comes sharp from the box. It's not lightening quick, but the piercing ability of this weapon is impressive, and the balance is nothing to laugh at. A slight dissappointment that the pommel is essentially screwed into the bottom of the hilt, but if I wanted a $700 sword, i'd have bought it. Instead I got exactly what I wanted. A strong steeled, bold hearted, and rude cuss that would rather be chopping into chainmail rather than being hung on a wall. This is not a toy. This is not a decoration. It is neither playful nor pretty. Instead this is a tool that was designed and built in the simplest, sturdiest, most cost effective way to get its job done without ever failing. I give it 5 stars not for being excalibur, but instead for being what it promised to be. A real sword for a Man-At-Arms.
