The Union Kit is perfect for those looking to enter the realm of Civil War re-enactment.

Forged of high carbon steel this blade makes a fine decoration with its detailed acid etchings but will also serve on the battlefield. Bringing things together is the Union leather sword belt making it easy to have your sword at the ready at all times.
The next set, complimentary to the former, is the Confederate Kit. This features similar items to the Union Kit but designated for soldiers of the Confederacy including is a solid copper mug engraved with “C.S.”. Next up is the Confederate Cavalry Officer's Saber. Also hand-forged of 1095 high carbon steel the blade is distinguished by acid etchings reading C.S.A.
