Cold Steel 88ARM Man at Arms Arming Sword 28" Blued 1090 Double Edged Blade, Black Leather Handle
CS88ARM: 88ARM Man at Arms Arming Sword
The Arming Sword takes its inspiration from the side arm of choice for many of histories foot soldiers and journeyman warriors. Smaller and more agile than many of the heavier swords on the battlefield, this double edged blade was light enough to be easily wielded with one hand, and stiff enough to find vulnerable gaps in a knight’s plate armor, or burst through his mail!
Cold Steel's interpretation of this lightning fast fighter’s sword is made from expertly heat treated carbon steel and richly blued to an inky black finish. Featuring pronounced upturned parrying quillons, a fluted leather grip, and a counter balancing wheel pommel, the Arming Sword is beautifully balanced, and, with all blued steel fittings, it’s good looking too!
The Man at Arms Arming Sword is sold complete with a hand stitched black leather scabbard with a steel throat and chape.

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.
