The Cold Steel Hand-And-A-Half Sword is amazingly light 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 Cold Steel capped the butt with a scent stopper pommel which can be a lethal weapon in its own right. Every Hand-And-A-Half Sword reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials and comes fully sharpened and ready for battle. To safely house the blade, included is a very attractive scabbard made of wood covered with black leather and steel throat and chape.
