  • 1- year warranty for blade breakage but not for minor bending*
  • Hand forged, light and flexible hollow grinded blade.
  • Historically accurate Pivot Points (FPP – 75 cm from cross)
  • Fine-crafted and durable hardened crossguard (~35 HRC)
  • Solid, unbreakable proper rounded tip
  • Durable rounded edge – 4 to 3 mm thickness, 50 HRC
  • High quality resin and cord gives secure grip. Handle is much more durable with these wrap.
  • Safe crossguard endings
  • Delicate and handcrafted notches on the crossguard and pommel
  • Peened octagonal acid-resistant steel pommel
  • All features closely mirror those of a sharp blade, but the Point of Balance (PoB) is slightly closer—approximately 10 cm from the guard. Other key attributes, including the Forward Pivot Point (FPP), Aft Pivot Point (APP), and Vibration Nodes, align with those of an authentic blades. This alignment is particularly significant for recreating medieval sword fencing techniques, especially in the bind. Unlike lighter and narrow blades with a closer PoB, this sword maintains contact more effectively, facilitating longer engagements with the opponent’s weapon.
  •  This wide sword blade aids in aligning cuts, guards, and winding actions It boasts a 4mm to 3mm edge, enhancing safety and resilience for training purposes.
  • Despite its strong flex rating of 17/19 kg, it bends more easily and causes less discomfort when receiving thrusts to the chest without protective equipment compared to a standard (~15kg) feder. This minor discovery is intriguing, and we plan to create a short video about it.
  • The sword generates a loud sword wind (swoosh), allowing you to practice “sword wind” techniques in every cut or combination and all solo exercises for test cutting.
  • Altogether, you receive a fencing tool that is safe for sparring, closely resembling a sharp blade (with only the PoB closer to the hilt, but it does not hinder the “sword wind” effect like poorly balanced objects).
  • It is genuinely hand-forged from the finest polish spring steel, not flat-ground or cut from thin sheet metal like many HEMA makers do.
  • You can use it for demonstrations; it looks, moves and sound far superior to any feder. 
* Every blade is checked a few times during production to avoid mistakes. We give 1 year warranty for breakage not every bend. We can also replace swords which bend on first use/sparring (and I do that without a problem) but after a few months of using and sparring minor bendings are normal thing when forces are too big. We can make it straight in our workshop, but we do not cover shiping cost. Frankly it is a minute of work and 80 % chances to finish it with foot and floor. Straightening the blades are common on every sport fencing training:

How to Straighten Your Fencing Weapon During a Competition

1. Learn to properly thrust with feder and use its blade flexibility – hands up when you are hitting.
2. Cut with proper edge alignment and avoid full force cuts to rigid targets – like Strong of partner blade/crossguard – if he parries your Weak just hit to his Strong – applying force does not work for you.
3. Avoid charging to each other in sparring – it may easily generate huge forces which can bend the blade.
