The art of sword cutting has long been associated with Japanese martial arts. However, Cold Steel opens a new chapter by highlighting the potential of Western swords. Inspired by the Arbedo model, the CS88HS sword is specially designed for cutting competitions on targets such as bottles, ropes, cardboard tubes, tatami mats, and other similar materials.
The thin, wide, double-edged blade is hand-forged from high-quality 1050 carbon steel. Delivered fully sharpened and polished, this sword is ready to show what it can do.
Maneuverability and Control
The CS88HS comes with a robust leather-covered wooden handle, designed for one or two-handed use, providing you maximum control during cutting exercises.
A steel double quillon guard is added to protect your fingers and effectively parry opposing blades.
Balance and Aesthetics
To counterbalance its wide blade, it comes with an elegantly designed lozenge-shaped steel pommel. The sword is encased in a sturdy black leather scabbard, complete with matching steel throat and chape.
It is crucial to note that this sword is sharp and cutting. Its use is strictly limited to cutting exercises on target objects like ropes, cardboard tubes, or tatami mats. Handling of this weapon must be conducted with special care and attention to avoid any risk of injury."
