Cold Steel 88CLQ Hunting Sword 24" 1055 High Carbon Blade, Hand Carved Rosewood Handle, Black Leather Scabbard
CS88CLQ: 88CLQ Hunting Sword
The hunting sword or "Hanger" is an iconic short bladed weapon (seldom over 26") that became quite popular in Europe and the Americas during the 16th and 17th centuries. Among the reasons for its popularity, outside of the dictates of fashion, was that it was an immensely handy, effective sword that was the perfect companion whether you were on foot, horseback, or on a crowded deck at sea! Like many of the originals, Cold Steel's version is quite stylish. The blade is satin polished with multiple fullers and a wicked false edge. The intricately hand carved handle is made from Rosewood and ornamented with nickel-silver pins. The scabbard's style harmonizes engagingly with the sword's design. It's made from heavy, black leather and capped at each end with an embossed nickel-silver 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.
An extremely tough steel with high carbon content and a hardness between 60-64RC, 1055 is best suited for high-impact and high-stress applications.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
