Cold Steel 1796 Saber Review

By my friend and me. Cut tests done by yours truly...


Very well done my friend :)


A sabre, is a sabre, is a sabre...

I thought only Katana's could cut like that


Yes! In fact,  I have been told that a real katana can cut through a pile of logs! (I have actually been told that).

Ye Olde Lunatic: I've been told the same sort of clap-trap... That a 1000 year old Katana in the hands of a 110 pound 70 year old man, could cut clean through a telephone pole.

I didn't even know where to start with that statement...

YL, while you're testing out that 1796, could you attach it to your wrist with a sword knot, then while letting it dangle, run around, fire pistols and throw spears?

Curious minds want to know how that works out!

Please video tape this. For posterity. Thanks.

Hmmm... I guess I could.

Any reason? Am I missing something?

Do I need to be on horseback?

Preferably. No reason really... just do it! stifles evil laughter
