CS88CSB: Chinese Sword Breaker
Cold Steel

Cold Steel describes this item as follows:

The ancient Chinese Sword Breaker had a rectangular (occasionally hollow ground) cross section with sharp corners making it possible for it to focus a blow with maximum impact. Such a blow could, at the very least, beat an opponent’s blade aside or so far "out of line" that recovery in time to mount a defense was virtually impossible. At the most, it could live up to its name and could break, bend or disable conventional swords and many other weapons with a single blow! In either scenario, one is left powerless to avoid the Sword Breaker’s imposingly ferocious point. Luckily, there were few who encountered this powerhouse in battle, as its girth and heft meant it required a warrior of substantial strength and agility to wield it properly. But, in the hands of a physically able, and skilled warrior, it was the scourge of hand-to-hand combat.

We at Cold Steel drew inspiration for our design from an original antique Sword Breaker we were privileged to handle and study in China. Our handle is made of heavy, dense Rosewood with a fluted cross section that affords a good grip. It features beautifully cast nickel-silver fittings throughout, from the decoratively detailed circular guard to the very stout 5 lobbed pommel that effectively counter balances the weight of the blade and makes it easier to wield.

Thirty inches long and beautifully forged out of 1050 high carbon steel , our Sword Breaker has a striking rectangular cross section and hollow ground "flats", and comes compete with a Rosewood scabbard that features nickel-silver furniture to match the grip. It’s built for the extremes of a smashing, hammering fighting style, with a point that is acute enough to pierce with little effort, yet tough enough to perforate even the thickest metal armor. It’s a bona fide wrecking machine!

This is my first sword,... AND IT'S AWESOME
Well at first the shipping took forever (impatient :p ) and when it came In I was really surprised because it was on a depressing day for me, when I took it out of the box, wow it was sharp and shiny as hell. When I went to cut cans it really is like cutting through butter, I saw the other review from the other guy, he must of got a defective sword (and a defective keyboard XD ) maybe he should just trade it in for a new one.

CHINESE JUNK......................ALMOST
SAD THAT COLD STEEL HAS ALLOWED THEIR DECISION TO MOVE MANUFACTURING TO CHINA...SADDER EVEN STILL THAT THEY ACCEPT THE SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER FINISHED PRODUCT TO SELL UNDER THE COLD STEEL BRAND THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT ADDITION BUT MINE WAS A NIGHTMARE. EVERYTHING FIT TOGETHER CROOKED........HANDLE BLADE SHEATH.EVERYTHING....IT DID NOT EVEN GO ALL THE WAY IN THE SCABBARD.......... I LOOSENED THE BOLT ON THE END BY HAND AND IT ALL JUST CAME APART......... ON TOP OF ALL THAT THE SCABBARD WAS CRACKED ON TWO SIDES........... TRULY THE WORST PIECE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED FROM COLD STEEL OR THE KNIFECENTER ONE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT SOEMONE WOULD HAVE CAUGHT THE DISGUSTINGLY POOR QUALITY............. BUT..........AS AN OWNER OF 70% OF ALL COLD STEEL PRODUCTS I MUST SAY THAT THIS IS THE ONLY PIECE IN LIKE 20 YEARS THAT I HAVE RECEIVED THAT WAS GARBAGE.......... THE OTHER PROBLEM IS NOW IT WILL COST ME A FORTUNE TO RECTIFY........... NOT A GOOD DEAL AT ALL ESPECIALLY FOR SUCH A LOYAL CUSTOMER
