Complete Synthetic Sparring Basket Hilt with Black Blade
This new line of polymer sparring swords was developed in conjunction with Dave Rawlings, founder of the London Longsword Academy and the Historical European Martial Arts community. The basket hilt is perfect for students of George Silver and the Highland Broadsword fighting manuals. They provide a more realistic replacement for the wooden waster for drilling and pell work, as well as providing a safer alternative for the steel blunt in contact sparring when used with appropriate protection. The sword is made from a special purpose high impact polymer. This sword features a black blade with black pommel and basket hilt. Black handle. A brass nut is molded into the pommel to provide a tight metal on metal joint to the tang and compressing the slide-on grip against the guard. 41" overall with 34" blade. Handle is 6 1/2" long. Point of balance 6". Weighs around 1.76 pounds. A key feature is is the ease of assembly and disassembly, which allows for easy transport and customization of individual swords with the interchangeable components.
