The Cold Steel English Back Sword measures 32″ and is Cold Steel’s interpretation of a 17th Century English Mortuary Hilt Sword compared to their Man at Arms Series. Inspired by historical examples, this nimble, single-handed sword is fast and lively in the hand and a sheer delight to train with. Able to land a decisive blow even when cutting fast from the wrist, this beautiful sword is made from 1055 Carbon Steel and supplied with a mild patina to give an ?antiqued? finish. Each English Backsword is fully sharpened and supplied complete with an ornate leather and steel scabbard. An excellent addition to the collection of any Historical European Martial Artist or Historical Reenactor.
