American Civil War Swords and Weapons

Southern and Northern forces were issued with a variety of swords depending on their fighting style; cavalrymen, infantry, artillerymen, marines and officers, all had distinct weapons - knives, swords and sabres. In course of the civil war, sword bayonets were developed - a 23 inch blade mounted on the end of a rifle or musket turned the slow-to-reload medium range weapon into an effective spear for close range work. Museum Replicas manufacters and distributes a great selection of these historic knives, sabres, swords and bayonets.

Review of: Confederate Staff & Field Officer's Sword

This sword has all amazing features. The only part that looks like it was made more cheaply is the sheath. The sword is solid construction, Welded full tang with a leather and gold wire wrapped grip. I got it sharpened, and the tip is sharp enough to easily break skin, but the edge could use some TLC. If you pay for sharpening, you are paying for an edge to be put on the blade, not for a sharp blade. The construction is great and the price is even greater. The only shortfalls are the sheath and the edge. Everything else is perfect. I give it 5 stars because this sword is worth the cost without the sheath and without the edge put on it. So for the price its a win-win, I just know that MRL has some amazing quality sheaths, but you pay for it. Also on their mastercraft swords, it seems that they put more time into the edge. Check out their mastercraft swords if you are a sword lover, you will not be dissapointed.

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

Handsome, elegant, ferocious.  This cutlass feels the way I would want any sword to feel.  The thanks to the profile taper the balance is perfect for a cut-centric sword with no sense of blade heaviness at all and still with wonderful point control.  Seems to match the original pattern closely and is solidly put together (the hilt is peened and seems to have the additional strength of being resined as well). The only negative is that the wire wrapping on the grip can irritate the had...on the other hand (pun!), it does cause the sword to remain locked in your grip.  This little sword has been the standard setter in my collection and continues to be.  It's also a great Steampunk cutlass for those wanting one to round off a costume.

Review of: 1840 Non Commissioned Sword

very good.  the hilt appears to be peened and is solid. the fitting of the blade into the guard is tight; the hole isn't over-sized so there should be no issues with shifting around.

Review of: Confederate Staff & Field Officer's Sword

Beautiful sword! The leather grip feels nice when handled. The sword is balanced and is not too heavy. Easy to control using one hand. Very ornate with confederate symbols displayed down the blade. A masterfully crafted homage to southern heritage. Thank you for this amazing addition to my collection. High quality confederate pieces are becoming hard to find. I highly recommend this work of art.

Review of: Officer's Silk Sash

Wow.  The maroon with any black shirt is beyond dashing.
The knit is a little wider than it looks in the picture and they ARE 9 feet long.
The tassels are surprising weighty too, but not badly so.

If you're looking between this and the rayon sash, get this!
(I don't own a rayon one, but this one is really awesome.)

Review of: 1840 Non Commissioned Sword

This is a fine reproduction, and completely functional. The blade is stiff, well tempered and beautifully finished. I had mine sharpened and it was honed perfectly to a near razor sharpness with no visible secondary edge.
A remarkable reproduction!
