Cold Steel Sword Breaker by Steven Seagal XX

(Ref: CS-88CWSS)

Steven Seagal is a Martial Artist who should need no introduction. He found international acclaim and celebrity for his high-octane Action Movies, but he is first and foremost love is the world of Martial Arts.

With an encyclopedic knowledge of the Japanese warrior arts, a 7th Dan Black Belt in the art of Aikido and a lifetime of training, he is still a much-in-demand instructor and consultant. Whether working specialist techniques with UFC stars Lyoto Machida and Anderson Silva or travelling the world teaching seminars, there is no doubt that Steven is still a force to be reckoned with!

Our stunning signature edition Steven Seagal Sword Breaker takes its inspiration from an antique weapon from Steven's personal collection - but rather than simply make an exact copy of the original, Steven worked with Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson to bring together their combined knowledge to create a modern version of the historical classic.

Steven presented us with an interesting challenge. His fighting style, grounded in a lifetime of study in Aikido, is fast and fluid, with deft movement and precision timing, but Steven is also a very tall, very strong individual, capable of wielding bigger heavier weapons - and hitting like a freight train!!

They developed a Sword Breaker that was big enough to deliver powerful percussive blows, but still perfectly balanced and capable of nimble flowing moves and subtle counters.

Taking the original sword breaker as inspiration, Lynn and Steven lengthened the handle and counter balanced the Sword Breaker to facilitate a one or two handed grip, then added a sharp thrusting point to make a formidable new sword breaker!

The paralyzing power of the Sword Breaker has to be felt to be believed. Its dense cross section repels an opponent’s sword like water on wax. Not only shrugging off strikes with ease, but often damaging the sword in the process!

Nicknamed the "Sword Slayer" during prototyping, this fascinating sword is also a thing of beauty. With richly blackened fullers and hand polished highlights, the "blade" is as good looking as it is effective.

Cold Steel Chinese Sword Breaker XX

(Ref: CS-88CSB)

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 with a single blow! In either scenario, one is left powerless to avoid the Sword Breaker's 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.

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.
