The Thompson Saber is not a historical or period-specific sword, rather it is a newly developed, thoroughly modern fighting saber.  Designed by Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson to be a fighter''s sword for the modern martial artist. "I believe that the edge is superior to the point when facing multiple opponents." Therefore, while it does thrust well, the Thompson Saber is a cutting tool first and foremost, on foot or horseback.

Hair shaving sharp for the first six inches from the point, then gradually less sharp down through the rest of the blade, leaving enough material to block, parry and even bludgeon an opponent''s blade. It''s deeply blued to aid in rust resistance, but also to make the blade harder to see in the fast paced cut and thrust of combat.  It has a modified 1904 Saber guard, offering amazing hand protection and a sizable ray skin wrapped handle that will accommodate even big modern fencer''s gloves.

"I designed this sword to be able to make deep cuts even with a flick of the wrist, and it makes monstrous cuts when "drawn" through the target. If you study bladed arts and appreciate the combative potential of the sword, I''m sure you''ll love this saber!"

The Thompson Saber comes complete with a heavy duty thick leather and steel scabbard with a leather belt frog for ease of carry.  1055 Carbon steel blade.

Its blade is wide and sharp enough to almost double as a pole arm, while its pronounced wings can be used to trap and pin an opponent's limbs, snag his shield and parry and entangle his weapons. The 1055 Carbon steel head of the Winged Spear even made an effective parrying dagger and short sword on its own!
