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: 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: 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!

Review of: US 1860 Naval Cutlass

I love this cutlass.  It is well balanced and very quick in the hand.  It is by far my favorite long blade and second only to my hand forged Tomahawk.

The scabbard is well made with a handy belt frog.  I purchased the European baldric as I find it much more comfortable to wear. Plus it looks so badass!
