Our American Revolutionary War Hanger from Kingston Arms represents a refined version of a popular sword carried by non-com infantry officers. The four-slot guard styling was replicated from earlier British designs. Patterns like this one were produced and continued to be used until the war’s end.
The 24 ¼” blade is beautifully balanced at 1 lbs 14 oz. Our version features a matte stainless-steel guard and pommel. The wood core grip is leather, and wire wrapped which grips well and the hand. Even gloved hands fit nicely into the grip and knuckle bow. The scabbard is leather wrapped and stitched at the seam. The locket and chape are made of stainless steel. The locket features a frog button designed to be worn with a baldric.
A gentle grip, well balance and a wicked sharp blade, the American War Hanger will please a discerning aficionado. Certainly, an excellent sword for reenactors or collectors alike.
