  • 1055 carbon steel blade
  • Blued and polished rust-resistant finish
  • Unique basket guard
  • 36" overall length

The 1055 carbon blade of this Cold Steel 1917 Saber is moderately curved with a short bevel grind and a long narrow fuller. When combined with a short, sharp, clip point, these features make for a very stiff, strong blade capable of delivering fearsome cuts and thrusts while shrugging off abuse that would break a lesser sword. To help protect it from rust, each blade is polished before being deeply blued to inky black perfection. In keeping with its mission as a "stand alone" cut and thrust weapon that's equally at home when fighting on the ground or the back of a horse, the 1917 Saber features a unique 3/4 basket guard. Designed by Lynn C. Thompson in conjunction with his fencing partners, Anthony DeLongis and Jason Heck, it offers complete protection to the fingers and vulnerable thumb and when presented correctly, protects the user's hand, wrist, and forearm. 36" overall length.

Lynn C. Thompson Dropped the Ball

So, I looked over this Sword a long time before finally purchasing it. I love the style and the strength. It's a seriously solid piece of steel. The basket-guard is huge and offers superior hand protection. However, that is also the problem. The guard is so wide that it doesn't fit in the scabbard, that is, the frog is built wrong. How did Cold Steel drop the ball on this? What a shame; to have put so much time and effort into such a beautiful blade and then not check to see if the scabbard could be attached to a belt and worn without jutting and twisting the leather to its breaking-point. Unfortunately I am going to return it and purchase a more usable blade. But, at least BUDK always ships it fast.
