Cold steel, also known as melee weapon, is a type of weapon that can be used to hand-to-hand combat. They are divided into three groups. The first category is called pointed weapons, as it contains for example spears, which are pointy. Certain types are also designed to hook at the opponent and either disarm them or knock them off their horse. The second group is called edged weapons, which consists of swords, knives and axes usually used to attack quickly and conveniently. The last classification concerns blunt or weighted weapons such as maces, hammers or clubs. If you are interested in any of them, check out our replica weapons for sale.
