Designed by Angus Trim, the A.P.O.C. Tactical Broad Sword matches the close-quarters cut-and-thrust fighting abilities of the classic short sword with all the benefits of modern materials and practical design and craftsmanship. Well-suited to close combat, this sword brings far more reach and power to bear than a knife, yet is short enough to be used in tighter spaces or a short range scrum. The blade will cut, chop and hack a target with great ability and the ridgid blade is also a quite capable piercing weapon as well.
The blade is tempered 9260 high carbon steel with a black-oxide coating to give it some rust resistance and practical stealthiness. The composite grip is made from two scales of highly durable G-10 fiberglass laminate which has been triple-riveted to a thick tang to create a robust and resilient full-tang construction. The wedge-shaped pommel is an ideal all-purpose bludgeon – ideal for breaking barriers, glass and targets in an emergency situation – it is pre-drilled to allow for your own lanyard.
The durable sheath is made from fiberglass and has a MOLLE compatible kydex mounting which can be used to fasten and secure this sword to your or your vehicle in an array of configurations.
