    "Why wear a sword in a supposedly modern war dominated by firepower? Although there are undoubtedly undertones of a distant chivalric age connected with such a potentially brutal implement, it is not primarily a weapon, rather it is above all else, an insignia of rank – a sign of authority bestowed upon the officer by the State. As such, it is important to remember that the sword is part of an officer’s uniform and should be treated as an object of respect by the rank and file, but more importantly, by the individual wearing it."

     

    This beautiful reproduction of a Confederate Non-Commissioned Officer's Sword has a 30 1/2-inch tempered steel blade and a leather scabbard with polished brass fittings. The hand guard is marked "CSA" to designate the Confederate States Army. The blade is made of tempered carbon steel and is .200 inches (5.1 mm) thick and .96 inch (24 mm) wide. This sword measures 37 inches (94 cm) overall and weighs 2 pounds 4 ounces (1.0 kg). The genuine leather and brass scabbard weighs 8.2 ounces (232 grams). The Confederate NCO sword has a solid brass grip and guard with the letters "CSA" cast on the outer guard.

    This is the Confederate version of the US 1860 Non-Commissioned Officer's Sword. The major difference between the two was that the Confederate model has "CSA" cast into the handle. This sword is similar to the 1860 Musician's sword, except that this model has a full hilt guard, while the Musician's sword had a 1/2 hilt guard. As with several weapons and accoutrements, the Confederacy simply copied or altered Union counterparts. There are only a few surviving original examples of this style sword known to exist, and they command premium prices! Here is your chance to own a faithful reproduction of this rare CSA sword!
