The Court Sword measures 38 1/8 inches overall and finds its point of balance 2 inches from the guard. A leather-covered scabbard is included.

The CAS Hanwei Court Sword features a sharpened blade of high quality carbon steel, strength, and temper, and is fully functional.

SH1214 Court Sword by CAS Hanwei

Edged weapons played a critical role in the Revolutionary War. Battles like Guilford Courthouse were decided in bloody hand-to-hand combat where bayonets, swords, and axes were used. Riflemen, having no bayonets, relied on knives and tomahawks. Swords were widely used during the war. Infantrymen used hangers, while their officers carried short sabers. Cavalrymen carried heavier and longer sabers. Officers' small swords were light, straight, and slender. Essentially a European weapon, this small sword was the final incarnation of the dueling sword. It first appeared at the close of the 17th Century and was very popular during the 18th century. The chief advantage of the weapon was its lightness, which allowed for numerous fencing maneuvers that had been unthinkable when employing the heavier rapier.
