The Thompson Saber is not a historical or period-specific sword, rather it is a newly developed, thoroughly modern saber. Designed by Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson, and bearing his name, the Thompson Saber was created to Lynn’s exact specifications. Having studied and trained in Western, Japanese and Filipino arts for decades, Lynn has sparred with everything from short lightweight machetes to two handed broadswords. The Thompson Saber combines all of Lynn’s favorite traits from a wide range of sources. It’s ground to his exact specifications; 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. Its deeply blued to aid in rust resistance. It has a modified 1904 Saber guard, offering amazing hand protection and a sizeable ray skin wrapped handle that will accommodate even big modern fencer’s gloves. Thompson 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 potential of the sword, you’re sure 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.
