GERMAN LONGSWORD 88HTB COLD STEEL
Cold Steel’s German Longsword is a high-end, high performance sword for serious users and collectors. A modern interpretation taking its inspiration from historical examples, it has an expertly heat treated and spring tempered 1060 steel blade that is exquisitely balanced, beautifully polished and hand-honed to a keen edge. A large steel S-guard and protective side ring offer significant hand protection while being capable of performing the binding, trapping, and winding techniques that made the German Sword Masters art so effective!
A wrapped leather grip terminates in a heavy steel pommel that not only counter balances the long blade but serves as a potent weapon in its own right. The twisting spiral design on the pommel is more than just a good looking decorative feature; it also provides a comfortable and secure grip even in gloved or gauntleted hands. Finally, the German Longsword is encased in a thick ridged, hand-stitched leather scabbard with an antiqued steel chape and brass buckled leather straps for wearing your sword on a belt or baldric.

This responsive and fast sword has a acutely pointed blade that is well-suited for thrusting into the gaps in armor - the blade has a diamond cross section which gives it the necessary stiffness to ensure it can pierce with minimum energy loss. This blade geometry is coupled with the necessary tempering to ensure the blade can sufficiently flex to absorb shock. A large crossguard ring gives good additional hand protection and the fluted pommel is more than just an attractive part of the hilt; in the hands of a capable combatant, it doubles as an excellent, mace-like form for pommel strikes.
