Sword Cold Steel Horseman's Basket Hilt Broadsword
Whether you're fighting from a saddle or on foot, we sure you'll be hard pressed to find a better weapon for the job than our Horseman's Basket Hilt Broadsword. Loosely modeled on English Broadswords of the 17th and 18th centuries, it has a long double edge blade that can deliver powerful shearing cuts well as a deadly thrusting attack.
The handle is made of wood wrapped in Samé, or ray skin, and bound with wire for an exceptional grip. And, to completely protect one's hand it comes with a full basket hilt that's been enlarged to accept an American sized hand. There's a heavy steel pommel that counter balances the blade and serves as a lethal striking tool in its own right. Plus, because the blade is made from modern high carbon spring steel, it will pass the British Proof Test. It comes complete with a heavy leather scabbard that's reinforced by a steel throat and chape.
