Cold Steel 88CLMS Colichemarde Sword 32-3/8" Carbon Steel Blade
CS88CLMS: Colichemarde Sword
This listing is for the Colichemarde Sword (CS88CLMS). The Colichemarde Dagger (CS88CLMD) is sold separately and can be found here.
The Colichemarde emerged on the sword scene in the late 1600's during the decline of the Rapier and the rise of the small sword. Its long suit was its uniquely shaped blade that was extra wide at the forte then stepped down or narrowed for the rest of its length before ending in a wicked point. The advantage of this configuration was it allowed the sword to be used to parry or oppose even the heaviest weapons without breaking, yet remain light and supple enough to take full advantage of its lightning quick point.
Cold Steel president Lynn C. Thompson has long been an admirer of the Colichemarde due to its great versatility in attack or defense so we enlisted the aid of our good friend Dave Baker, and made our own modern interpretation.
True to form, our blade mirrors the original design concepts with an extra long and wide forte that abruptly tapers down to an acute and deadly point. The hilt features a decorative, yet highly functional, double shell guard, complete with finger loops and knuckle bow, while the grip is completely wire wrapped and capped with a matching pummel.
Additionally, we have also taken the liberty of creating a matching dagger with a stiff, beautifully ground and polished blade, double quillions, and wire wrapped handle.

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.
