Additional information

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.

    I’m impressed with the quality of this sword for the price. The balance is tipped towards cutting for this cut and thrust sword, which is what I want, and makes sense for this type of blade.
    The blade is well made and feels very durable. I paid for the sharpening service, so I can’t comment on the factory edge, but the edge is perfect now. The scabbard is nicely done and fits good. No rattle, great retention, weather proof. Only thing I’d change on it is to make the slots larger to fit a standard 1.25″ to 1.5″ inch belt. I’m not sure how I’m going to strap it to my waist yet.
    The handle seems very durable too. I’m going to file around the guard for a more comfortable finger over the guard grip. The metal edges are a bit sharp there. I’ll probably shape the grip panels, which I find to be a bit too squarish, and sand them to fit my had a bit also. I have size L hands and the grip is very filling. People with smaller hands might consider thinning the grip panels some.
    As always, Cult of Athena’s prices and service are the best. I’d definitely recommend this sword and I’m thinking of getting another.

    This sword is pretty sweet. Somewhat of a hybrid blade; the geometry is similar to beefier Medieval C&T swords, but it has a grace, quickness, and length closer to a Spatha or Jian. This sword is excellent at cutting, but still short enough to allow for lethal thrusts in close quarters. It is comfortable as a single hand sword, but the grip is long enough to use two hands when extra power is wanted or required. Unlike so many European C&T swords, this sword is designed for a warrior on foot.
    It would be ideal with a buckler or off-hand blade. Quality materials and quality construction. Excellent fit and construction on the scabbard for a mass produced poly scabbard. The value is not tremendous, but for a mass produced sword this one is quality, deadly, and pretty damn cool. I’d highly recommend to anyone looking for a practical double edged cut and thrust sword.
