Synthetic Sparring Single Hand Blade with Silver Finish
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 single hand sword is well suited to students of the I.33 sword and buckler tradition, or it can be combined into the basket hilt 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 blade is made from a special purpose high impact polymer. The blade is designed to flex in the last one third of its length. The blade/tang joint is reinforced with a high tensile steel rod running the full length of the handle. A brass bolt is molded into the blade to provide a tight metal on metal joint to the tang and compressing the slide-on grip against the guard. 39 1/2" overall with 34" blade. Weighs around 1.13 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. Mix and match pommels, guards and handles to create your own custom sword.
