CS88NOR: Norman Sword
Cold Steel

The Norman lust for battle and ravenous desire for land and treasure can, like their famous sword be undoubtedly traced to their Viking forefathers who wrenched their homeland in northwestern France from the hands of Charles the Simple in the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte in 911 AD.

Never satisfied with their lot, it wasn't long before they once again took up their broad, double- edged swords and set sail across the English Channel to conquer Britain most famously, at the battle of Hastings in 1066 AD.

Now Cold Steel is pleased to offer you our battle ready version of this famous sword. Like the originals we have studied, and the trainers our President Lynn C Thompson spars with, it offers a long wide blade with fully sharpened edges and a very useful point. To insure it's light enough to be easily wielded with one hand we have also added a single broad fuller in the center of the blade that serves to reduce weight, improve balance and add the stiffness needed to withstand heavy blows.

The hilt of our Norman Sword is also reminiscent of many surviving originals with upturned, spatulated quillions, leather-over-wood grip, and a modified "cocked hat" pommel. This pommel shape was specially chosen because it allows more room for the hand, while counter balancing the blade and serving as a weapon in its own right. This sword is also available as a Man at Arms collection high value Norman Sword (CS88NOR) with a leather handle which can be foundhere.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.

Gotta like it
Cold Steel swords are far from historically accurate, nor are they all that beautiful, but in the $300 range they vastly outperform their colleagues from Valiant, Windlass, etc. Strong steel, real cutting edges (i.e. not old springs with machine-ground edges thrown on) and solid construction give this the sturdiness to take a lot of use. The Norman is a well-balanced, versatile one-hander that is quite fun to use. The CS videos are cheesy but they show what these swords can take.
