The medieval man-at-arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. To honor these rugged, salt-of-the-earth warriors, Cold Steel has created a range of true journeyman's weapons called the Man at Arms (MAA) Collection.
These battle-ready weapons may lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of Cold Steel's high-end weapons, but they are quite similar in quality and performance. The fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that complements the handles. And when well-oiled, they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.
The Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of Cold Steel's finest blades, but at a markedly reduced price. If you always wanted a Cold Steel piece but couldn't afford one, this collection is made for you.
The Wing Spear is a true product of the battlefield. Its blade is wide and sharp enough to almost double as a polearm, while its pronounced wings can be used to trap and pin an opponent's limbs, snag his shield and parry and entangle his weapons.
After countless hours of sparring and experimentation, Cold Steel's President Lynn C. Thompson and his training partners found many subtle nuances to this surprisingly versatile weapon. Lynn found that the more time you spend "making it your own", the more great opportunities present themselves when sparring and fighting. The head of the winged spear even made an effective parrying dagger and short sword on its own!
If you train in martial arts, study battlefield arts or have a passion for historical re-enactment, we heartily recommend purchasing a winged spear by Cold Steel.
