President Lynn C Thompson drew upon his vast sword fighting experience to combine the finest attributes of several different swords to make an entirely new, and unbelievably potent new fighting blade that we like to call our Hybrid Cutlass. Lynn has been training with master swordsmen Ron Balicki, Luke LaFontaine and Anthony DeLongis for many years, and ever since the year 2000 they have trained exclusively full-contact with aluminum and steel blades and minimal protection! This incredibly hazardous training has served to not only vastly expand their fighting knowledge but it has kept them honest – taking less unnecessary risks and relying on their skill at arms and the inherent strong suits of their chosen weapons to keep them from harm. Understandably, as this dangerous training regime progressed, the fighters began to favor swords with greater reach, greater fluidity and range of motion, and with greater hand protection! It was during this “sparring out” stage that Lynn began to customize and improvise with his most favored swords – the 1904 Austrian Saber and the 1917 Cutlass. The Saber provided almost unparalleled hand protection with minimal bulk but it favored fighting from horseback, whereas the Cutlass was an excellent tool for fighting on foot, lightweight, maneuverable but still more than capable of opposing bigger weapons. By combining the best features of these two swords Lynn began to create the first design evolution of the Hybrid Cutlass – a truly modern fighting sword.

Cold Steel

Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. Superblades has been a retailer of Cold steel’s for over 15 years now and we are convinced they are among the best knives and swords in the world. Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication. New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock & locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it. We have tested the Tri-Ad lock here as well and found it to be second to none in strength and durability. Of course, Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years. We here at Superblades will always continue to support and represent Cold Steel as a premium brand. Shop all Cold Steel Knives and Cold Steel Swords
