Cinquedea, Short Sword Cinquedea, Short Sword
Cinquedea, Short Sword

The Cinquedea has held a long fascination for everybody at Cold Steel. It gained popularity as the sidearm of choice for noblemen walking through the narrow alleyways and walled cities of Italy. A blade worn exclusively for civilian self-defense, it was essentially the precursor to the civilian side sword and the rapier - and yet, this instrument of personal protection seems to have owed much of its design to fashion as it did to the cut and thrust of mortal combat!

Surviving examples of these unusual short handled and steeply tapered blades are often highly embellished and ornate with etched or gilded blades and deep multiple fullers that border on jewelry rather than weaponry. But beneath the romanticisms of High Renaissance fashion lay a tool made with purpose. A wide, stiff cut-and-thrust blade that could be brought into play in confined spaces and deliver a mortal wound!

Cold Steel's interpretation of the Cinquedea is made from expertly heat-treated 1065 high carbon steel with highly engraved guard and pommel and a hand-carved rosewood grip. The Cinquedea is sold complete with a leather scabbard with engraved steel throat and chape.

The Cinquedea is MAGNIFICA!!!
Well crafted and good looking, sharp and mean. The sheat stands the quality of the blade. I'm really satisfied with my purchase since I was looking for an historical italian blade suited for narrow spaces.
