This Hanger sword has a blade of 1055 high carbon steel peened to a hilt of brass. Its companion scabbard is crafted from sturdy leather with chape and throat pieces of brass.

This reproduction of a British infantrymanís hanger is based on an extant example dating to 1760. These British brass-hilted swords were heavily influenced by French and German hangers from the continent as evidenced by its half-basket hilt with a heart shaped guard.

The hanger sword is designed for close-in fighting - the blade is an ideal length for a close-quarters scrum and the wide, cutlass-like blade delivers forceful chops, hacks and sweeping slashes. The clipped point lends itself well to a slightly upturned thrust.

This form of the Hanger is very similar to the Cutlass, and a blade of this type offered here would do quite well when used as a Cutlass.
