If you ever wondered what's the difference between the swords carried by the Confederate (CAS) and Union (US) armies, wonder no longer!  It can become quite confusing as most styles were copied and adapted from classical European blade styles.  The North was fortunate in having two official US Arsenals, one being the J.T. Ames Manufacturing Co. of Chicopee Massachusetts which had been supplying blades to the government since 1832.  Many government issue Union blades were carried in the hands of the South during the early years of the war!  When supplies from the North ceased, the Confederate forces began relying on local manufacture and imports.  Southern bladesmiths copied the Union designs, but with subtle changes.  Many swords are undeniably of the same design and were used by the Confederate as well as Union armies.  All our reproductions replicate the fine qualities of the sabers of this period and boast carbon steel blades that you can sharpen.  Most have a solid brass handle and leather or wood wire wrapped grip as the originals.  Perfect for the collector, reenactor and historian of this significant time in the history of the United States of America.
