Cold Steel

This listing is for the Hand-And-A-Half Dagger (CS88HNHD). The Hand-And-A-Half Sword (CS88HNH) is sold separately and can be found here. There is also a Man at Arms collection high value Hand-and-a-Half Dagger (CS88HNHDM) with a leather handle available here.

Hand-And-A-Half Sword (sold separately)

We would be hard pressed to think of a more versatile or effective sword than the "Bastard" or "Hand-and-a-Half Sword" we offer here. For a sword of this size, it's amazingly light and fast and tips the scales at approximately 3 lbs. Its 33 1/2" long blade is quite wide so it can produce deep shearing type cuts yet pointed enough to be effective in a thrusting attack. Its long handle is suitable for both a one or two handed grip and is fashioned out of wood covered in black leather. To balance the long blade we have capped the butt with a beautiful "scent stopper" pommel which can be a lethal weapon in its own right.

Hand-And-A-Half Dagger

Scaled down in size and almost identical in appearance, it offers a 13" long blade designed to cut and thrust, yet be sturdy enough to stand in for a buckler in defensive roles.

Every Hand-and-a-Half Sword and companion dagger reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials and comes fully sharpened and ready for battle. To safely house their keen blades we have also included very attractive scabbards made of wood covered with black leather with a steel throat and chape.

Cold Steel Hand and a Half Dagger.... not a toy, beautifully made.
I own it and bought it becasue of a fascination with daggers. As a child we had a dagger and sword from a dead Nazi officer (brought back from WWII by an uncle). I like high quality knives and a dagger caught my attention as something to admire and enjoy as a weapon, never expecting to use it. This is moderately priced,modestly boxed, and well made all over. The dagger itself is quite impressive to handle and examine. It is NOT cheaply made; it's very well designed and handsome. It is not really sharp as shipped, but minimal work with a stone and fine polishing of the edge can bring it to plenty sharp to hack an arm or neck seriously. It's got plenty of mass and manueuverability to fight with. And faced with a determined opponent holding it, you should have a good handgun or shotgun or you are in bad trouble. The scabbard is not a knockout, but at this price point you know you will not get a finely detailed scabbard from a skilled swordmaker. It's a fine example of a factory piece, but the design and details are not second rate at all. I could recommend it to you and if you care to sharpen its edges, be careful to stay on the very edge so as not to mar the broad flats of the dagger. All in all, a piece you will be proud to own and no one would sneer at its workmanship for the price point it meets. And keep it away from kids!
